Sitting at my desk having a full on ugly cry (a very happy one!) because the Supreme Court made same sex marriage legal in all 50 states (and defended Obamacare the other day – woot!). It’s been a long time coming. There’s still much work to be done, but right now, anything feels possible.

To keep this in a soccer vein, Robbie Rogers scored his first goal for the LA Galaxy last night since coming out and it was Pride Night as well!  And former MLS player Mike Hatzke came out. Mazel tov! It feels like a dam is about to break, y’all. Wouldn’t it be beautiful if people could just love whomever they want without judgement or fear? I look forward to that day. May it come soon.

Let love rule!

A Long Time Coming…

24 Jun

People, indulge me for just a minute (well, as you always do). Something really monumental just happened in New York and I’m sitting here bawling my eyes out. Finally, FINALLY, my state legalized same sex marriage. It has been a battle from start to finish and I can’t believe it’s finally happened. It really came down to the wire: the last day of legislative session and the vote went down 33-29. As I’ve mentioned, I’m away this weekend at a wedding and it’s an added joy to know that now ALL my friends who want to get married will be able to. I’m going to go fucking broke buying wedding gifts and I couldn’t be happier about it.  This just means so much to me, I can’t even tell you. I’m so emotional right now. I’m going to have a drink to celebrate.  I wish I was in NYC tonight because on top of everything else, it’s Pride Weekend and the city must be going absolutely nuts right now.
