Today, the Supreme Court of the United States of America made the right call. The best call. The call for love.
This is important for all Americans, regardless of your sexual orientation, because it’s one tiny step towards the equality the Constitution grants to us as human beings. Not to say that equality has ever been followed to the letter (ahem #blacklivesmatter), but it’s a step, and one that makes us burst with joy and pride for all our friends around the country who can now publicly express their love, if they so desire, by joining the ranks of the married.
…and please never forget these amazing people, who continued and pushed forward the conversation and understanding of what it means to love someone.
Don’t recognize them? That’s Mildred and Richard Loving. In June of 1967, their case ended the ban on interracial marriage. Thanks for the good fight.
…and last, via the lovely Peter Lochner…
