San Francisco International LGBT Film Festival 2007
We are a binational gay couple living in Toronto formerly in NJ, USA. We struggled for 6 years just to remain together. In early 2006 we were inspired to apply for residency in Canada because we yearned to be free, equal and safe from the tyranny of the right. This blog will be a mix of our immigration process, our daily lives and topics of interest like politics and religion.
Great news for the guys over at Would Be Canadians, they received word from the Seattle Consulate, which means they are in the home stretch.
We are still waiting for them to request medicals. We're almost 2 months past the file transfer to the NY consulate.
I worked from home and had a great lunch with my favorite bear. Emilio and I planned to do our usual Birthday tradition, Prime Rib at Charlie Brown's. This time my parents joined us and it was a pretty good low key day. Just the way I like it.
For us it just feels like Sunday. Our long and slow process of ridding our lives of organized religion reached a new point today. We didn't wish each other "Happy Easter" when we woke up. It was the first holiday that we previously celebrated religiously that it didn't occur to us to wish each other the usual greeting marking the day.
My sweet Emilio had a very bad week. He lost his job.
One big bonus to moving will be no longer having to do my commute in New Jersey traffic any longer. I wouldn't mind the drive so much if it wasn't for New Jersey drivers.
