Dunn on the Farm: “God Bless All Marriages” – A Report from the Stanford Daily.

Aidan Dunn celebrates Judge Vaughn Walker's decision to overturn Proposition 8 yesterday.

The Stanford Daily, which has been breaking news from the Farm since 1892, reports on yesterday’s ruling by federal judge Vaughn Walker that found California’s Proposition 8 banning same-sex marriages unconstitutional. Daily reporters interviewed Stanford religious studies student Aidan Dunn, class of 2011.

“Today is a great day,” Dunn said. “For me personally, it means that someday I might be able to marry the person that I love. What I hope it means for the community is that we start fighting for more queer and social justice issues.” For the rest of the story, visit the Stanford Daily online.  [Photo courtesy Aidan Dunn]

Boulder Daily Camera gets the Picture, but Prop 8 overturn is not a Dunn Deal.

Everyone, from legal eagles to the peanut gallery, agree that this will go to the US Supreme Court. Meantime, let the celebration commence! Friend of the site Aidan Dunn shows the back of his head in this shot. From the well-named Boulder Daily Camera out of Colorado. News of the same day: the dismissal of Lt. Choi under DADT. Ironic juxtaposition. The nation watches.

“Sheree Red Bornand, right, hugs Aidan Dunn after hearing the decision in the United States District Court proceedings challenging Proposition 8 outside of the Phillip Burton Federal Building in San Francisco, Wednesday, Aug. 4, 2010. A person close to the case says a federal judge has overturned California’s same-sex marriage ban in a landmark case that could eventually land before the U.S. Supreme Court. Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker made his ruling Wednesday in a lawsuit filed by two gay couples who claimed the voter-approved ban violated their civil rights.” (via Boulder Daily Camera.

Aidan Dunn in USA Today

Update: the back of Aidan’s head gets famouser and gaymouser by the minute. The photo was printed in papers in Mexico, India and other foreign and remote locales. Closer to home, the dubious honor of the front page above the fold of the USA Today.

Earthquakes, Chile and Queer Spirit: Aidan Dunn preaches at MCCSF.

The following is from Aidan Dunn of San Francisco. Aidan is a junior in Religious Studies at Stanford University and has recently returned from a semester in Chile, where he worked with MOVILH – the Movement for the Integration and Liberation of Lesbian Gay and Transgender People in Chile.

Dear Friends,

I have agreed to preach at the Metropolitan Community Church of San Francisco (MCCSF) about my experiences (spiritual and otherwise) in Chile, pre-and post-earthquake, on Sunday, 11 April, 2010. It would be great to see you there! Services are at 11am and 7pm…

MCCSF is located at 150 Eureka St, x 18th St., in the Castro, San Francisco. For directions, or more information about the church, please go to www.mccsf.org.

MCCSF is an interfaith queer spiritual community. The 11am service is more “traditional” Christian worship with traditional hymns; the evening is more high-energy, gospel-style music, and more interfaith. It would be great to see you at either one; please let me know if you can come! I hope I can put together a sermon that will make the trip worth your while…

Best Regards,

Aidan Dunn
