Love ALWAYS Wins

Today marks a HUGE step in the fight for equality!! Prop 8 was ruled unconstitutional!!!

After hearing extensive evidence in support of marriage equality, and essentially no defense of the discrimination wrought by Prop 8, Judge Walker reached the same conclusion we have always known to be true – the Constitution’s protections are for all Americans, including the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community,” said HRC President Joe Solmonese. “We thank the courageous plaintiff couples, the American Foundation for Equal Rights, and attorneys Ted Olson and David Boies for their tremendous efforts leading to today’s decision and their ongoing commitment as the case moves forward on appeal. The battle for marriage equality continues, and we must all continue our work – in courthouses and statehouses, in church pews and living rooms – until equality is reality for LGBT people and our families everywhere.

I am a HUGE believer in equality for EVERYONE and I really hope that one day the world will recongize that LOVE IS LOVE and it doesn't matter who you love. No one should be punshied for who they love, no one should fell ashamed for who they love, no one should ever feel like they have to hide who they truly are b.c of what the world thinks of them. I know we are far from 100% acceptance of equality for everyone, but it's good to know that we are once again taking a step in the right direction! LOVE IS LOVE PEOPLE and LOVE will always win!!
