Happy New Year Everyone!
2013 was, in some ways, a banner year:
marriage equality and trans
President Obama made history this year when he mentioned both the
Stonewall uprising and gay and lesbian people being treated "like anyone
else under the law" during his second inauguration speech.
"We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths --
that all of us are created equal -- is the star that guides us still;
just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and
Stonewall..." he said. He continued:
"It is now our generation’s task to carry on what those
pioneers began. For our journey is not complete until our wives, our
mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. Our
journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated
like anyone else under the law -- for if we are truly created equal,
then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well."
