Thrilled For New York's Gays Achieving Marriage Equality
The Marriage Equality Act passed earlier tonight in New York State. Progress is being made and I'm grateful. I am also sad because I never got to see my kid brother marry the man he loved before he died. He lived in California and he died in 2006. It's stupid he couldn't marry a man he loved and spent nearly 15 years with. So I'm glad. I hope to see Marriage Equality across the country before I die. It'd be good and I do what I can to help make it happen... even if it's just talking about the personal side of it. My brother was a good man. A jerk at times, but a good man. His partner was a decent guy and I'd have been happy to have him as a brother in law. The progress is good. It can stand to get better.
