The Ups and Downs of Marriage Equality
Two years ago today, marriage equality had a major “up” in Minnesota. Governor Mark Dayton signed marriage equality into law. Now all couples — gay or straight — can make a lifetime commitment of love and devotion to each other.
Here’s the “down” — in many states, same-sex marriage is still illegal.
Marrying Franni was the best thing that ever happened to me. And we want every committed couple – gay or straight – to have the same joy and dignity that marriage affords. But all too often, that isn’t the case.
Luckily, things are looking up. The Supreme Court is considering four cases right now that could finally make marriage equality the law of the land. We’ll find out later this summer.
The majority of Americans support marriage equality. Our friends in the LGBT community deserve the right to marry who they love. And our government should not stand in the way. In honor of this Minnesota milestone, I’m showing my support for marriage equality online — and I’d like you to join me.
For two years, same-sex couples in Minnesota have been able to marry who they love. I hope that someday soon, same-sex couples from every state will have that same freedom.
