Have A Gay Thanksgiving Day

By Charlotte Robinson, November 22, 2012
We always have something to be thankful for on Thanksgiving Day but this year our LGBT community has historically moved closer to equality in this country. Together we've won marriage in Maine, Maryland & Washington & defeated that nasty anti-gay amendment in Minnesota. President Obama & the Democratic Party have finally come out for marriage equality. Public support for gay marriage is at record levels & multiple courts have ruled DOMA unconstitutional & hopefully soon it will be headed to the US Supreme Court. Without a doubt these are amazing achievements. As we celebrate with loved ones this week we'll reflect on what really matters in life. For all our LGBT people what matters most is our loved ones & extended families. Just remember about the millions of people steadfastly standing up for all families, for simple dignity, because they understand that love is love. As we continue our momentum to full equality in this country we must keep on educating those who just don’t get it until they do. My grandmother always said everyone wants the same thing; “A roof over their heads, food in their bellies & someone to love.” Let’s all remember that simple definition of life as we enjoy this holiday. So from our family to yours have a Fabulous & Safe Thanksgiving Day.
