Possibly The Culmination of a Generation’s Struggle for Equality

Dear Every Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered Person, and Straight Ally:

Take this as the plea that it is.

Tomorrow morning, please wake up early, take a break from what you do, get to a computer, your phone, turn on CNN. At 7am tomorrow, the United States Supreme Court will announce its opinions on both Marriage Equality cases before it. They will decide on Prop 8 in California, and the federal Defense of Marriage Act.

This may very well be the culmination of a generation’s struggle for equality, bending the moral arc of history at last to our favor, and in our month of Pride.

If we and our husbands and wives and children yet to be want to be able to say where we were when justice and equality resounded throughout America, we will all be at our screens, waiting for these decisions to be announced, watching as our government recognized us as fully integrated human beings, not our sexual preference to be made legal but our very human desire to love and be loved.

And tell everyone you know. The decisions start at 7am Pacific, 10am Eastern. No doubt multiple news sites and feeds will carry it. Find one. Watch with me.

Thank you, friends.
