Do people realize how phenomenal of a year it has been for gays? It almost feels like a game of Dominoes, where that first tile falls and everything else follows suit. Sometimes, I wonder if this is how African-Americans felt when their civil rights were given back to them. President Obama sure gets it. I mean, did people listen to his Second Inauguration Address?
Like virtually every other gay person, I was ecstatic when SCOTUS ruled in favor of Edie Windsor. Do people remember where they were when it happened? I was sleeping. But, I did celebrate at Mixers Bar in Baltimore, Maryland. Honestly though, I was worried that we would lose this fight with the Supreme Court. But, I always knew that Justice Ginsburg was on our side.
One thing is for sure, social media played a huge role in proselytizing gay rights (for and against). And on the day that the SCOTUS ruling came down, Facebook went viral with celebratory icons from HRC.
