This week was huge with rulings on Prop 8 and DOMA in favor of gay marriage (henceforth known as “marriage”) and Wendy Davis’s filibuster marathon in Texas. Not to mention 6 year old trans girl Coy Mathis, who won a landmark civil rights case in Colorado. Yay, Coy! Then registration for October A-Camp opened and DeAnne Smith started a podcast and everything was beautiful.
As Katrina explains, there’s still a long road ahead for queer equality (and don’t get us started on the Voting Rights Act). Even still, this week was nothing short of historic. Hope you find some time to celebrate this weekend! I hear canned champagne is a thing now.
