Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

On Saturday 31 March 2013, Lead singer of the band Garbage,  Shirley Manson,  paused in the middle of their concert at Detroit’s  Majestic Theater to let a fan propose to his boyfriend onstage.

The band invited Dominic on stage, Shirley explained how Dominic had been supportive of a sick friend to the band, even flying out to a benefit for the friend. She said, "As it happens I was on my Facebook page yesterday, I was on the tour bus and I was going through messages as we do, I saw this message from your boyfriend, Scott, and he told me that you were really super amazing."

Shirley Manson then brought Scott out, who got down on his knees and proposed to  
Dominic, his boyfriend of four years.

The crowd erupted into cheers. As the crowd cheers, you hear Dominic shouting "Yes".

Michigan in 2004 passed a constitutional amendment to ban equal marriage. In 2013 the crowd cheers a gay couple proposing on stage.

It's coming.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).
