It really is a brave new world out there. It’s Pride Month, of course, a month to reflect and celebrate where we are and where we’ve come from.
It’s been quiet a year! Last year at this time, we were waiting – with bated breath -a decision from the Supreme Court regarding a Proposition which the CA voters approved in 2008. It’s hard to believe that it was less than a year ago the Supreme Court struck down that odious Proposition. In the year since, we all
know couples, in GLASC and out, who have gotten happily, and legally married.
And – wonder of wonders! – California did not fall into the sea. [Though whether we
caused the drought remains to be seen: don’t tell Pat Robertson.]
Things continue to move forward nationally as well. Just this week [May 13th] Idaho struck down its anti-gay ban, and beginning June 1st, gay couples in
Illinois will be able to get legally married. A fitting date it seems to me.
It is a new world out there. One I never dreamed or imagined would ever come to
be, growing up a closeted kid in the 80’s in Burbank. So, be proud, and celebrate! We have so much to celebrate for!
