This morning the Tampa City Council voted unanimously to move forward toward the creation of a Domestic Partnership Registry.

It was a proud moment to see standing room only in the chamber, filled with community members wearing red to show their support for a Domestic Partnership Registry. A remarkable line up of community leaders turned out, and in the end not a single person spoke in opposition of moving forward with this critical measure.

Click here to thank the City Council for their commitment to passing a strong Domestic Partnership Registry, and encourage your friends to do so as well.

A Domestic Partnership Registry is a simple legal tool that provides access to a handful of essential family protections including hospital visitation, emergency notification and the ability to make funeral arrangements.

Help us keep up the momentum by sending an email to the council members. Tell them it's time that the City of Tampa send the message that all families are welcome.

Mark your calendars for April 5th.
The Domestic Partnership Registry will be up for a final vote on April 5th and it's critical that we let the Tampa City Council that we're standing with them. Arrive by 8:45am to sign up to speak during the public discussion period that begins at 9am.

Tampa City Council Final Domestic Partnership Registry Hearing
April 5th @ 9:00am

The Hoosiers went a combined 22-41 overall, just 7-29 in conference play. “When you’re coming off what we’ve dealt with the last couple of years, you have no choice but to treat every game as the most important game,” Crean said. “If you do that enough, it leads to moments like this.”

Most fans of the Beastie Boys' nsdffhfgg15469early hits know ATrue Religion Jeansdam Yauch, or MCA as he was known, for a few choice boasts, like “I got more juice than Picasso's got paint” (from the 1986 song “The New Style”). True ReligionDespite the group's early reputation as party animals, however, peace, mindfulness and positive energy were true religion outletsubjects the rapper wanted to represent in his work.

Any remembrance of Yauch has to focus on the more spiritual lines he wrote, as on 1998's “Intergalactic,” where he perfectly described himself with: “Well I got to keep it going keep it going full steam/ Too sweet to be sour too nice to be mean/ On the tough guy style I'm not too keen/ To try to true religion jeans outletchange the world I will plot and scheme.”

The most tethered and thoughtful of a trio of New York true religion salerappers who became the Beastie Boys, Yauch died on Friday after a three-year struggle with cancer. He was 47, and in that half-century he managed to carve a path at once so admirable and unlikely that his contributions should serve as a model for a life worth living.
