At noon today, my Facebook wall starting rolling in with news articles, photos, commentaries and the full 360 degrees of celebratory voices of queer Latinos announcing President Barack Obama’s endorsement of their big wedding out on their parent’s rancho in Corona, CA. All kinds of posts about a victory for marriage equality.

My wall was flooded with posts about this.  Why?

1. Because 50% of my friends are gay and

2. Because 50% those friends are hardcore gay rights/marriage equality activists.

Everyone had to share the news with each other, over and over again. Fun images of Obama on a Unicorn surfaced. Some folks even went public with their official endorsement of the president’s reelection.

One of my future colleagues, a Digital Arts and New Media grad school student at UCSC, Danielle Williamson, helped to gather photos from her Facebook wall so that you too can share our experience.

She says:

I’m impressed (though not surprised) at how quickly we can pass on these words from the president. Just in the few minutes I took to scan my news feed wall, there were people I knOW from all over the US expressing their excitement in a spectrum from humor and levity to seriousness.

I’m happy Obama spoke out in reaction to North Carolinas very poor choice to ban gay marriage, but we, as a country make sure we hold him to this words.

I was scrolling down all of the images with my dad, who for the first time heard me through about why this was such an emotional and important moment in history. Not only have my years of activism brought us to this point in time as a country, but the chances of having a future relationship with the man of my dreams (he’s out there somewhere) end in marriage is a step closer to being a reality.

The following are 3 hours worth of Facebook wall postings. Enjoy!
