We Are Just Like You
My intention for this blog is to prove that two gay guys are equal to not less than straight people. We're two people that love each other building a life together. It's unfortunate that in 2013 in Texas in the U.S.A. our love is not considered legitimate. I use this platform to expose slices of our life- our normal gay life. If you only know gayness through gay stereotypes: the disco boy, the wealthy power couples, the snarky gay best friend, then you see gayness as some alien life. I'm shining a light on our path: we live in Texas, we work hard for our paychecks, we love our family and friends, we want a family of our own, etc.
Yes, our life would be easier if we moved to the west coast or east coast. (I love taking vacations around gay friendly spots, because I can hold my husbands hand without unwanted attention.) We're Texans, dammit. This is our home too. Our family lives here. We're not going to leave. We're going to stay put and hope Texas evolves...in our lifetime!
I will continue to write this blog until I can legally marry my husband in my state.
