Well, it’s Gay Pride month and we’re also just a few weeks away from the Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage. I think it’s almost always a bad idea to anticipate outcomes because life is so unpredictable, but just about everyone, including every Republican candidate for president, thinks that SCOTUS will rule either that all Americans have a constitutional right to marry whomever they want regardless of gender or that all states must recognize legal marriages performed in other states.
So it would seem that this is a particularly good time to step back and assess where we stand in the struggle for freedom and equality for all LGBTQIA people. What follows is what I think along with a number of facts. I would love to know what all of you think. I invite everyone to participate in this important discussion.
