Speaking Sunday at the North Louisiana Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, famed director John Waters offered up a suggestion: Ban heterosexual divorce.

Waters, who was honored by the festival and had his 1981 film Polyester screened, was asked how gays should push for equality. His response, whether lighthearted or not, was to push for an end to legalized divorce. There actually is an effort in California to ban divorce.

Waters made the same suggestion two months ago while filming his "I Advocate" segment for The Advocate On-Air. Watch it here.
