I know I'm late to the party, but I just wanted to take a moment to talk about the recent Supreme Court decision regarding DOMA and Prop 8. I've been a bit preoccupied this past week, but when Jonah woke me up on June 26 and played the news on his smart phone.
I couldn't believe it. Especially after their decision on the Voting Rights Act, I wasn't sure they would make the right decision regarding DOMA and Prop 8. I was overjoyed by the decision, not that it immediately affects me now. I live in a state where gay marriage is not yet legal. But it will be...one day.
I've talked about this before; this rolling stone can't be stopped. It's only a matter of time. And I am excited. What a great time to be living. 25 years ago when I was buried deep in the closet, I never could have imagined the gay marriage would be legal or accepted anywhere. I never could have imagined that a person could live freely and proudly as a gay person, let alone that that person could be me.
I was also pleased to see very few negative remarks about the decision from friends on Facebook.
Jonah and I will be legally married and will get those rights that have thus far been limited to just heterosexually married couples. I do not know when, but I believe it is within reach, and I am thrilled.
Long live equality!
