DJ Sasha on Gay Marriage

"I'm all for gay marriage. It is a civil liberty issue to me that needs to be sorted out. I think the country is well on its way. I'm glad things are happening in San Francisco and I think in Massachusetts also. Maybe with the next president, if we can get rid of the Republican, it will be a bit easier to give people equal rights."

Superstar DJ/producer/remixer Sasha in an interview with Arjan on July 6th. Sasha recently released his new full-length remix album "Involver" (one of the year's finest dance records).

Amber on Marriage

"In this day of age and in the presence of violence and war, I think that it is plainly ignorant to think that you should forbid their love and question the sincerity between 2 people that happen to have the same sex. It is a proven fact, that being homosexual is NOT by choice but a genetic pre determination. If you are giving gay people the same duties in this society - you MUST give them the same rights and choices in return. Many of them are willing to adopt children, left behind by straight couples, and raise them in loving homes - I don't ask you what is going on in your bedroom and I am simply not interested either- for me- the main key is love and respect- and as long as you are a person that has that in his heart - I cannot see anything wrong with it. We need to grow up already and start worrying about the REAL issues in this world!"

Singer Amber in an email to Arjan.

Cyndi Lauper on Marriage

"I don’t get why people are up in arms over it. Who the heck is it hurting? Do we really need this to distract us from what’s going on in the world? I know a lot of gay parents who are better parents and more caring about their families than some heterosexual families."

Jason Mraz on Marriage

"It seems we have a president who chooses not to change the unconstitutional constitution and grant simple rights to those who may be truly in love, but insists on sealing the constitution for good with an all out ban on the issue. If you’ve never contacted your congressman before, now is an excellent time to exercise one of your last constitutional rights and defend nothing more than love. This isn’t an issue about going against god and ancient mythology, in fact, I believe it’s an act more towards god and good orderly direction, for the people and hopefully, by the people. And while you’ve got the president’s attention, remind him that the constitution that he’s so keen on protecting was printed on hemp paper."

Pink on Marriage

"If you wanna marry Joe Millionaire, go ahead. If you're a celebrity and you wanna marry your high school sweetheart for 55 hours, go right ahead. If you're J. Lo, and you wanna marry 18 people, for 6 days each, hey! Go right on ahead! But if you happen to be reasonably minded and have fallen in love and wanna marry your soul mate and make a life of it, and you just so happen to be the same sex, then NO! How dare you! You demon creatures! We’d rather you just buy gasoline and support our war and continue to consume and fear in our country so we can make money off you. But do us a favor — don't hold hands in public. Love, Pink”
