the victory of marriage equality marriage in New YorkPosted: June 28, 2011
There was great celebration among my Facebook friends last week when the New York state legislature approved marriage equality. It's so embarrassing that here in California we are still slogging through the Proposition 8 court battle.
Over at my Yahoo! pressure cooker recipes group, the list owner, who just turned 60, and who has been with his same-sex significant other for nearly thirty years, is ecstatic. They plan on a wedding in late July, shortly after the law goes into effect.
It's a delight to see so many people so happy and it is indeed cause to celebrate.
But work remains to be done, so let's continue to fight the good fight.
In the meantime, I commend to you Susan Russell's blog on marriage equality, and her reflections on how she has a life, not a gay life.
