Homo Why We Fight

Superstar gay journalist and blogger Rex Wockner has a post up on his blog today made me cry like a little Palin. San Diego City Councilwoman Toni Atkins married her partner of eight years, Jennifer LeSar, on September 6. Rex was there, got quotes from the happy brides, and took a few pictures. And it was one of the pictures—and its caption—that made me choke up.
Imagine the impact that attending the wedding of his openly-gay aunts had on that kid. What must it be like for young gays and lesbians to live at a time when—and in a state where—gays and lesbians are fully-enfranchised citizens, and gay relationships are afforded the same respect and protections that straight relationships have always been afforded. To know that love and marriage are possible for you too—not compulsory, gay “radicals,” but possible—must be incredible.
