June 24, 2011 marks a major part in our history with marriage equality passing in New York State and in 30 days it will pass into law. So glad we are seeing this in our lifetime and now the waiting game begins till we see it fully go through on July 24, 2011. Congratulations LGBT, this is a major step in the right direction to human rights for all equally.
When we first met back on October 3, 1993 we never even thought of getting married or even thought we would be here 18 years later. But here we are today and marriage is for everyone, gay, lesbian, straight, transgender, bi. Such a special time in New York City.
We heard the news this evening from Joe Fiore while volunteering at the LGBT Center for Fur Pride and the energy was high and the excitement was overwhelming. Happy Pride everyone! Love and let love! Hate doesn’t = Love! Take this day as all days to hug and kiss someone you love and hug a stranger! Love is contagious!
