Go West/North And Marry, Then Return Home To Be An Equal (Well Almost).

You Are Equal, But...

Official seal of District of Columbia

For us to consider you that, in marriage equality, you will have to temporarily pick up from where you call home, work, pay taxes and whatever else you do and head West Or North to say "I do," and only until then will you be legally recognized by us (but not YOUR federal government) when you return.

The new law which was approved by a 12 - 1 vote by the DC Council in May, went into effect Tuesday "allowing" DC the ability to legally recognize marriages performed out of the district.

What a way to compromise on our rights!?!?

Just the other day, July 4th to be exact, I was reminded of all the wonderful "freedoms" and "rights" we as American's enjoy in a place where you can still be fired from your job, released from military service, beat up, denied housing, denied the right of a marriage license, denied the right to adopt, laughed at just for the simple fact of being who you are...

Standing up (ok, sitting down) for our rights!

Keep a smile on your face and love in your heart!
