Today I woke up feeling a little bit more equal and full of hope for the future. After the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the heinous Defense of Marriage Act and decided not to rule on California's equally hateful Proposition 8, West Hollywood's LGBT community came out last night to celebrate our victories in equal rights and reclaiming gay marriage in the Golden State.
The crowd was also reminded that even though we'd earned this celebration, there was still lots of work to do to make same-sex marriage possible for the 37 other U.S. States where the right to marry is being blocked.
Here's to more equality, less discrimination and to be able to one day arrive at the U.S. immigration desk and approach as a gay couple without being told they don't recognise your relationship status (whereas at the Canadian border they do accept and respect you already).
It's going to happen and it's going to happen sooner rather than later...
