Actor Colin Farrell Praises Ireland’s Passage of Same-Sex Marriage: “Bravo Citizens of Ireland!”

My future husband Colin Farrell is stinging praises for Ireland for becoming the world’s first country to legalize same-sex marriage by a popular vote.

“Today Ireland has opened up her heart in a way that the whole world will feel,” Farrell  said to People Magazine. “How we have changed our fortune in 24 hours, how we have lit the way, how we have guaranteed a brighter and more loving future for all who call this beautiful land home. Bravo citizens of Ireland.”

Colin, who’s brother Eamon is gay, in November, wrote a letter in the Sunday World calling for Ireland voters to support gay rights. He also took his support to television, appearing on RTÉ’s Claire Byrne Live in January to make the case for gay marriage.

He said, “I support this vote with every fiber of my being.”

Back2Stonewall Presents Advocates We Love: Colin Farrell

It’s always nice to take a moment and recognize those that advocate for equal rights (it’s even better when we can do this while looking at pretty pictures of them) The point is that we should celebrate these fantastic specimens of the human condition each and everyday.

Case in point, Colin Farrell. This beautiful Irishman is an accomplished actor and even though he has what is perceived by some as a sketchy “bad boy” past, Farrell does show off his golden heart more than what most give him credit for. In 2009, Farrell showed up for his brother, who is gay, to support him and marriage equality. Colin even served as best man for the wedding held in Vancouver Canada, as at the time same sex marriage wasn’t legal.

See this is the great thing about Colin, is that rather than give formal statements of support (which statements of any kind are greatly needed and deeply appreciated), it’s by actions that he shows support for equality. This is the kind of support that needs to be shown. When someone of influence and stature just doesn’t care what others may think and supports their family no matter what, with love. To me that’s what makes him an advocate.

 

And he’s so hot it’s maddening.

(guys, if he ever dyes his hair read, I will LOSE it OMG)

WATCH The Official “TOTAL RECALL” 2012 Remake Trailer Starring Colin Farrell! – Video

Gat geeks rejoice!

The Total Recall remake trailer is here starring hunky (and extremely gay friendly) Colin Farrell.

Now I am usually against remakes, BUT If a 80’s Sci-Fi movie could benefit from today’s computer generated special effects technology and the lack of Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sharon Stone in it.  Total Recall would be the to remake.

The Total Recall 2012 remake also stars  Kate Beckinsale, Jessica Biel, Bryan Cranston, and Ethan Hawke. There has been no casting news so far of a three breasted alien.

Total Recall opens in theaters on August 3, 2012

Actor and Uber Hunk Colin Farrell Speaks Out Against LGBT Bullying

“If there was one great wish I have for my country – for a land that I love and a people I so revere, it would be that school bullying were a thing of our past.

So much has befallen us in our shared history as a people. The harshest of these times have threatened to take our dignity, or scald our hearts into closing.

“Most of our great trials, from soiled land to the institutionalized abuse of trust and power, were inflicted upon us, whether by nature or the power corrupt. Now with bullying, there is a clear choice and the choice is ours.

“Each individual, as a member of his and her community, must Stand Up! In the face of this appalling brutality that plagues our schools. In effect, bullying is no less than the systematic doling out of pain upon the innocent. It is literally laughing in the face of somebody as they fall into increasingly grave danger. It’s not my place to draw parallels, but we have had enough of such hardships the world has.

“Whether it be the attacking of Gay students, which I witnessed first hand happening to my own brother, or students who are in the minority as a result of race or religious beliefs or any other such characteristic that separates them from ‘the norm’, it is all wrong and has no place in a just and compassionate country such as I know Ireland to be. We have always been praised as being the friendliest and most welcoming race in the world. My wish is for us to prove it daily, in the school yards and playgrounds across this Great Land of Ours.” –
