Today is a great day for love.
I don’t have much to say aside from, I LOVE New York!
Seriously though, this decision was a long time coming.
Now, when’s the rest of the country going to get on board?!
For that matter, I think its about time we started to pass laws protecting the rights of trans people. This victory is beyond fabulous, yes, but it is so important to remember that many trans people, some even living in the states with marriage equality, still don’t have vital things like job protection and this is so not okay. The DSM still lists being transgender as a mental illness, under “gender identity disorder” which is also, not okay. I am so, so happy that marriage equality laws passed in New York but the battle for LGBT equality is far from won.
