I’m thrilled that we made so much progress in 2013. Here’s to even more progress in 2014 and beyond!!
Happy New Year to all my followers! ❤
From twin pro-gay Supreme Court rulings, to the president of the United States referencing “our gay brothers and sisters” in his inaugural address, to the first male pro athlete coming out of the closet, 2013 has been a “banner year” for gay rights.
In no other year has the battle for same-sex marriage — a centerpiece of the gay rights movement — gained so much momentum. A little over 10 years ago, such unions weren’t permitted in any state. The majority of Americans were staunchly against gay marriage, according to Pew polls. Globally, not a single country permitted same-sex marriage until the Netherlands in 2000.
