The Supreme Court has agreed to finally resolve the national debate over same-sex marriage. The justices will consider four cases from Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky and Tennessee, consolidated and heard together. They will hear 2 1/2 hours of oral arguments in April and and issue a ruling in late June.

What do you think the outcome of this historic ruling will be?

Ireland Catholic priest applauded for coming out during service

Father Martin Dolan came out as gay last weekend during a sermon in which he supported equal marriage rights for same-sex couples in the Republic of Ireland, where a vote on the issue is slated for May. “I’m gay myself,” he said. The Dublin archdiocese declined comment on the matter pending discussion with Dolan, who is away on a previously scheduled vacation, reports the Belfast Telegraph. One of the congregants said, “We are all very proud of Father Martin. Because he has admitted that he is gay he doesn't change the person that he was before it.”

Daddyhunt CEO Defends Marriage of Stephen Fry

Carl Sandler, CEO of Daddyhunt, has strong words for recent critics of the announcement by Stephen Fry, 57, and Elliot Spencer, 27, that they are planning to marry.

“What's all the fuss? There are millions - yes millions - of intergenerational relationships in the gay community and many of these started out on Daddyhunt. It's all about the experience, not the age.

Congrats to Elliott and Stephen for showing us that love knows neither gender nor age. Gay men have spent decades fighting for our right to love one another without judgement. Anyone who would deny that to Elliott and Stephen are dealing with a legacy of homophobia that says gay men are only interested in youth and physical perfection. To even question why a younger man would fall in love with someone as handsome and distinguished as Fry is narrow minded.

When people find out that I’m the CEO of Daddyhunt, one of the first assumptions they make is that younger gay men who date older are just gold diggers. We have hundreds of thousands of younger men who appreciate older men, both physically and mentally. Not everyone chases an image of themselves. Thank God! I say, congrats for Elliot and Stephen!"

Florida becomes 36th state to legalize gay marriage.

Florida ended their statewide ban on same-sex marriage at the stroke of midnight Monday, and court clerks in some Florida counties wasted no time, issuing marriage licenses and performing weddings for same-sex couples overnight.

Are you in a rush to marry that special someone? Or would you rather remain a bachelor for life?

How do you bring up the topic?

It’s important to have conversations with your partner about safer sex and healthy relationships, but that can be a lot easier said than done. Worried about how your new or existing guy is going to react? You’re not alone, many men have those fears.

What are your tips on how to get the conversation started?

Here are some suggestions other guys have found helpful in having these conversations:
Don’t wait until the heat of the moment to start talking about HIV. It’s better to talk about it earlier rather than later...certainly before you have sex.
Some men who are living with HIV have suggested that it helps to talk about their status early in the relationship. Disclosing you are HIV-positive after you've become close to someone can cause your partner to feel as though you have kept something important from him.
Don’t force it. Find the right time and place to have a conversation. You can schedule a time to talk or have spontaneous conversations in a setting where you are comfortable. A conversation does not have to be face-to-face. Whether you talk, type, or text what is important is that you start the conversation about HIV.

We're proud Tim Cook is gay!

"So let me be clear: I’m proud to be gay, and I consider being gay among the greatest gifts God has given me."-Apple CEO Tim Cook

Apple's top iDaddy, Tim Cook, came out as publicly gay yesterday and said that, "Part of social progress is understanding that a person is not defined only by one’s sexuality, race, or gender. I’m an engineer, an uncle, a nature lover, a fitness nut, a son of the South, a sports fanatic, and many other things."

Among other things we also think he's one hot progressive Daddy!

MISTER Carl Sandler HuffPost Live

Is there a difference between a midlife crisis and a gay midlife crisis? That's the question they're asking over at HuffPost Live with our very own CEO Carl Sandler, Marcie Blanco, and Steven Petrow who wrote the book Complete Gay Manners weighing in on the discussion. Watch the video below and see where you stand on the subject:

While I can't claim to be midlife just yet, from my perspective I've seen more gay men come into their own at 40 and beyond and really own who are they are. They seem to get better looking, confident, and just generally more in touch with themselves and the world. Maybe in the straight world getting in better shape and taking better care of yourself causes an alarm of sorts to go off, but seems like par for the course in our community. If anything, I admire the qualities normally associated with a midlife crisis which essentially is trying something new and revamping your life as you fit later in the game.

Have you or someone you know experienced a gay (or plain ol') midlife crisis? If so, tell us how it went down and if you think it's different for gays vs. straights in the comments below.

Advanced Tie Knots for Gay Men

One of the great things about being a gay daddy is having the ability to throw down some knowledge at a moment’s notice and show those younger guys a thing or two about the power of experience. Things like telling a great story about a memorable moment in history, or offering words of relationship wisdom to someone who hasn’t lived long enough to have been around the block a few times. But by far one of our favorite things is teaching the twink set some tricks that are a bit more practical: like how to tie a tie, for instance. It’s a skill every good daddy should know! Brush up on your tying technique with the help of these helpful videos, featuring all kinds of classic knots as well as a few we’ve never seen before. (Bonus: they work just as well on a bedpost as they do around your neck!)
