Same Love

This morning, I woke up early 15 minutes late, walked the dog, turned on the TV, looked for what channel CNN is on (yes, I just found out it's 202), prepared Ron's breakfast and waited for the Supreme Court's decision on the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California's Proposition 8.

Macklemore and I have something in common: WE SUPPORT EQUALITY.
I was not only doing this for myself, but for our client who visibly supports marriage equality. For those who do not know, I work in social media and it's all about relevancy and perfect timing on here. I made sure I was sitting in front of the TV at 7am with my laptop in front of me. I texted my supervisor that I will be in late because I'm waiting for the rulings on the both cases, and this is work-related.

At around 7:15, DOMA was overturned. I could only imagine how happy my LGBT friends are. The government now acknowledges the federal rights of married gay/lesbian couples. They must be really, really happy.

A few minutes after that, Proposition 8 was considered unconstitutional. Gay/lesbian couples in California can get married legally, again. As I was typing my status update on Facebook, I felt tears stream down my cheeks. Then I realized, this is a truly happy day. Words cannot express how happy I am for my sister, for my sister's girlfriend and for every gay/lesbian couple who is in love. Then our dog started licking my face, it was time to get ready for work.

I am Catholic. I am straight. I support marriage equality.
