Today is a big day in our nation’s history. I am optimistic and hopeful that the Supreme Court will come down on the right side of history by overturning Prop 8 and DOMA when they make their ruling in a few months. Today they heard testimony on California’s Prop 8. I can’t tell you how disappointed I was in my old home for showing such homophobia and discrimination, but now the Supreme Court has taken up the issue and has the opportunity to make it right for all those who suffer because they love someone of the same sex. I was at the rally this morning in front of the Supreme Court, joining my voice in support of love and marriage and against bigotry and hatred.
D.C. isn’t always a perfect place to live, but it is an honor and a privilege to be able to witness history unfold so close to me.
This guy will be in everyone’s newspaper tomorrow.
This is an issue I feel passionately about. I can’t believe that it’s 2013 and we’re still debating civil rights. If you want to get involved, consider joining forces with the Human Rights Campaign.
