These people were out celebrating life with their friends. They were having a footloose Saturday night. They were celebrating Gay Pride during Pride Month, just like me.
Hillary has had a queer fan base for some time now. I admit that I wasn't always part of it.
As Ireland gets set to celebrate the one year anniversary of what is being promoted as 'LGBT equality', many voices who have seen and experienced the effects of ever-widening inequality still struggle to get their voices heard amidst the resounding noise of political backslapping.
The power to change opinion lies within the democratic Twitterverse. While it simultaneously contains homophobic statements and other instances of hatred, it offers the potential of balance. There one finds a wide and disparate variety of opinions and pluralist debate.
I'm tired. I'm tired of being a Christian. People say it's only a term, only a word but that word feels like the lead apron at the dentist's office. It's pushing down on me from all sides, clipped tightly around my neck.

Marriage Equality isn't just about a fabulous wedding. Financial tools are now available to help make LGBT retirement planning a bit easier for all couples in LOVE. Retirement will be changed by both Love and Marriage.
