I'm lucky, I know.
I have a partner who tells me he loves me.
I have a son who tells me he loves me.
I have family who tell me they love me.
I have friends who tell me they love me.
And I like that.
Someday, Mark and I will be able to marry and have it recognized at a federal level, both in the U.S. and Australia. Fortunately, I could move to Australia as Mark's partner, which is something the U.S. doesn't allow. It is infuriating that international, opposite-sex couples can marry and have that union recognized for immigration in the U.S. It is a right denied to Mark and me...and to many other same-sex couples.
It is unfair. Simply unfair.
I'm glad times are changing, but there's still much work to be done.
Please go here to illustrate your support for Freedom to Marry week...at whatever level.
