My first reaction to learn that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that marriage equality is now the law in the USA brought me to tears. I called my wife Marilyn at work immediately to tell her & we both cried. This has been a long hard but thrilling fight to be part of the marriage equality movement in this country & I am just overwhelmed to finally know my wife & I can freely move throughout this country as equal citizens, at least when it comes to our marriage. Janson Wu, GLAD Executive Director stated, “Words can hardly express how fortunate I feel to be a part of this historic moment. Marriage equality is now the law in every state in the U.S. Today, the Supreme Court upheld the dignity & equality of LGBT individuals everywhere & opened a path to security for hundreds of thousands of families across the country. Today’s historic decision caps nearly 25 years of legal challenges, grassroots activism, legislative advocacy & everyday people sharing the stories of our lives, our love & our families."
We want to thank all the marriage equality organizations that we have worked go closely with over the last 11 years. Especially my friend Mary Bonauto GLAD’s Civil Rights Project Director who argued the case before the Supreme Court. There are going to be historic parties tonight & through the weekend.
