Student playing bagpipes confronting homophobic preacher



In case you missed it (I know I did), here’s a video (also viewable here) of a Florida Gulf Coast University student, Brice Ehmig, confronting a homophobic preacher on campus a couple weeks ago by playing Amazing Grace into her bagpipes while he spewed anti-gay nonsense into a megaphone.

This brilliant video from the comedians at Heck Bender is a bit edgier than the stuff I usually post, and I hesitated before posting it, as I worried that some people might think that I (or the video) was making light of violence. But after giving it more thought (and talking with others), I’ve concluded that my initial worries were misguided. Click here or on ‘Read More’ to view the full post and to see additional videos.

LGBT Video Highlights: November & December 2013

Posted by MK on Dec 6, 2013 @ 12:40 pm

For this post, I’ve collected some of the best LGBT-themed videos making the rounds on the Internet over the last six weeks.

In the first video, NBC Chicago reports on the first same-sex couple to receive a marriage license in Illinois. Lambda Legal, which successfully represented the couple, recently wrote about the case on its blog.

Illinois approved marriage equality legislation last month, but the new law won’t take effect until June 2014. The couple in this video sought and received a special judicial order to allow an earlier wedding.

Comic Relief: Stephen Colbert

I try to steer reasonably clear of political partisanship on this blog, but I can’t resist posting this Stephen Colbert video, which pokes fun at a certain political party’s recent youth survey. I’m confident that most readers will find at least parts of the video amusing, regardless of which political party they typically favor.
