Just a little blurb about today, a day that will be marked in history forever. June 26th, 2015 is the day that the Supreme Court ruled same-sex marriage as a right nationwide. America, you’re doin’ something right here. You go, America.
But honestly, this is really exciting. After years of states struggling to pass this law, finally a nationwide sweep was made with a close 5/4 majority. I don’t usually keep up with politics too much, but after waking up this morning to so many people rejoicing, this was something I had to remember. Although I don’t know what it feels like to be a part of the LGBT community, it’s really rad that finally we can fill our country with love and pride no matter who you are or who you love. I hope that with this, we can finally break down the existing social constructs of hatred and alienation towards gays and grow to learn from and accept one another. On that note, gay pride festivals take place in the month of July in cities around the nation – and this year especially is gonna be big. So be sure to celebrate such a special day, and lets hope this is leading our country in the right direction!
