This weekend has to be the best moment I've ever had on stage. In front of a hometown crowd in Tulsa, Oklahoma, opening for one of my biggest musical influences, the great Ani DiFranco, I was able to shout to the rooftops of the historic Cain's Ballroom where we performed last night , that I was legally married to my husband, Ryan, in a song I wrote entitled, "Oklahoma Marriage Equality Song For Mary and Sharon. My husband and I were married 2 years ago in front of our friends and family in a small wedding in Tulsa after being together for 8 years. We had a fantastic wedding with music, food, cake and all the trappings but one thing separated us from other weddings: a marriage license. After our Oklahoma nuptials, we were told constantly to head to one of the few states where we could be legally married as a same sex couple the closest being Iowa.
"One Day I'm Gonna Marry You In Oklahoma!" Thank You, Mary and Sharon Bishop-Baldwin!

Ani DiFranco review – funny and furiously energetic
Feminist author, professor, and activist Jennifer Baumgardner , whose latest book, F 'em: Goo Goo, Gaga, and Some Thoughts on Balls , is due out in October, is a rarity in the national feminist movement: She is an out - and outspoken - bisexual. But Jennifer is perhaps best known for co-founding Soapbox , the Feminist Speakers' Bureau, which represents Gloria Steinem and many other feminist luminaries. I touched base with Jennifer to learn more about her work, and what Soapbox is up to now. Full disclosure: I'm a Soapbox speaker. AA: You're one of the few leaders in the national feminist movement who is also an out bisexual.
With June's arrival, we celebrate Gay Pride Month. It's a time when the world's LGBTQ communities unite to celebrate the freedom they have to be themselves. At the Greenwich Village gay bar one evening in late June of that year, the pain and frustration that the LGBTQ community felt reached its tipping point.
