I am so lucky.
Not just because I met the man of my dreams, but because I know beyond a doubt that I will be allowed to marry him. I have that right.
And knowing now the excitement and gratitude that come with having a wedding on the horizon, I feel even more strongly that everyone should have that right. Sexual orientation should not disqualify you.
When I heard the news today that a federal judge in San Francisco overturned Prop 8 for being unconstitutional, I was ecstatic. I immediately started IMing my gay friends—one of whom was crying at his desk at work. I hope very much that this repeal sticks. But either way, it's progress we need.
Progress that's deserved for anyone who is in love like I am.
