I’ve always wanted to experience an event that would undoubtedly be remembered as a piece of history, and today finally brought that. Today—June 26th, 2015—is the day that the U.S. Supreme Court legalized gay marriage nationwide.
I can barely even find words to express how happy it all makes me, and my eyes have been welling up with tears all day. Tears for my friends who are finally allotted the same basic rights that I’ve always had; tears for the couples who have been through hell and back just to be treated as an equal; and tears for those who aren’t here to see this amazing moment in history, but fought their hardest to make this possible.
We’re all living a moment that’ll be in future history books, and that’s beyond amazing. I’m so happy to be alive to see this day finally come, and this is a moment when I can truly say that I’m proud as hell to be an American. And I can’t wait to see what Sunday’s Pride Parade is going to be like.
