In a move that renewed our faith in humanity today (particularly after we witnessed a dancing man get hit by an ice cream truck), the U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker overturned California's heinous ban on gay marriage. Since an estimated 80 percent of the people we cover are expected to be directly impacted by the decision (we are a blog devoted to arts and culture, after all), we thought we'd see how some gay celebrities are reacting.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
