As an LGBT person, it's an incredible honor to stand with families as they take part in the WE DO Campaign, which consists of LGBT couples applying for marriage licenses in their hometowns. Watch Jenna and Kristen apply for a marriage license in Poplarville, Miss.
How did we, a couple who wear our "queer" identity like a badge of courage and who historically derided marriage as "not our fight," find ourselves asking for a marriage license? Put another way, how has our queer politic become seemingly so mainstreamed?
On May 10 my partner and I and our two sons, along with eight other couples and families, and a large crowd of supporters, walked to the Forsyth County government building to apply for marriage licenses. We did it to show plainly who is hurt when discriminatory laws are passed.
