Same here, Daggi.

Since we were talking about Wilson Cruz, here is a short interview with him on his experience coming out. I love him.

Did you know that here in Argentina if a gay couple decides to have a baby with a man, the child then can take the three last names? And also that Jewish gay people can get married through their religion?
I'm so glad that in my country LGBT people have so many rights

That's wonderful. I know that here in the states, the Jewish religion is a lot more liberal.

He's a very interesting man. I only know him from Twitter, but he always has informative things to share. Here's his Twitter…
