|We're featured on today's Gay Marriage USA timeline in Facebook|
This morning I greeted Bill with the news that our marriage photo and video is now on the Gay Marriage USA timeline on Facebook. Bill asked "When is this going to be over?" Poor Bill, he wants so much to go back to anonymity. I gently reminded him that when he got on the Ron Tipton roller coaster that his life would never be the same. He said "I know! I know!"
The last time we were on the Gay Marriage USA timeline, there was a photo of us before (1964) and after (2011). We were hoping that gay marriage would be legal in Delaware before we died. Well folks, as you all know that DID happen much to our surprise. Who would have ever have guessed that in our lifetime we could actually be married for real and have all the dignity, respect and legal protections and benefits that accrue to other (read "straight") Americans? I still feel like I'm dreaming and will wake up at any moment.
Now for my gay brothers and sisters who live in those states that still legalize discrimination against LGBT couples to get married and experience this euphoria that Bill and I are experiencing right now. Yep, we're still on our honeymoon.
