Today will go down in history as marking one of the most significant events of the continuing march toward gay equality. The rulings by SCOTUS against the Defense of Marriage Act and California’s Proposition 8 enforce the standards our country was created upon. All are created equal and gay citizens deserve the same rights given to heterosexual ones.
Now is a time to celebrate for tomorrow the hard facts of how we continue to be treated unfairly must cause us to unite and continue our fight against inequality and injustice. Mighty steps forward must be matched by mightier ones in the coming years.
