"If proud Americans can be who they are and boldly stand at the altar with who they love, then surely, surely we can give everyone in this country a fair chance at that great American Dream." Also: "Barack knows the American Dream because he's lived it ... and he wants everyone in this country to have that same opportunity, no matter who we are, or where we're from, or what we look like, or who we love."
“We have something in common. But whether it’s passing hate crimes legislation or refusing to defend DOMA; whether it’s ending “don’t ask, don’t tell” or ensuring that -yes, yes or ensuring that people can be at their loved one’s hospital bedside or speaking out for the rights of all Americans to be able to do what Barack and I did and marry the love of our lives as President, my husband has stood strong for the basic values of freedom, justice and equality that make this country great. And he always will.”
We adore you, Mrs. Obama!
And then there’s gay rights activist and son of two loving mothers, Zach Wahls, did what he does best and spoke from the heart, giving a very moving speech about equality and gay marriage.
It’s so great that there are so many positive things happening for us and so many people speaking out for equality… And then there’s THIS sick shit. Honestly, what is this world coming to? Why is gay marriage STILL an issue? Just ridiculous. It truly frightens us that people still think like this.
Here’s something kinda fun to wash the previous nastiness out of your mouth: New Zealand is trying to take the first step towards legalizing gay marriage! Here’s a billboard in support of that effort.
And to close, thanks to Buzzfeed.com, here are gay soap characters throughout the years! Just because...gay things are fun!
