Your Guide to the Gay Marriage Fight to help us keep up with the facts.
As you know, my husband and I had a wedding in Austin, Texas on May 13, 2006 in front of our friends and family, and my husband and I were legally married in Santa Barbara, California on November 2, 2013. It's been an adventure.
Equality is important - for us and for the future generations.
We have a neighbor who's a few years older than us and he was once (I think in the 1980's) fired from a job because his employer discovered he was gay. He rallied. He has a husband and two beautiful daughters - and he is our neighbor, which is a reward in itself! I have not been fired for being gay; in my professional career to date two of my three employers found my diversity to be an asset; the other employer was indifferent, which is a victory in its own way.
One day it will be hard for us to remember a time when gay people didn't have equal rights. We're not there yet, but we're getting close.
The fight continues...
