What if you desperately wanted to marry the love of your life and it was illegal?
Why the freedom to choose to marry is as important for GLBT folk as it is for straight folk (hint: it's about love):
One of my favorite related quotes is from Sharon Stone, who said at the NCLR gala fund raising event a long while back, "Marry, if you must."
I don't believe my marriage is diminished in any way if two other people decide to tie the knot. I have yet to see any plausible argument that proves gay marriage is wrong. In fact, the interesting question for me is thus: What is it about straight marriage that needs protection?
