Today is the day–the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled in favor of same-sex marriage in a 5-4 decision. Justice Anthony M. Kennedy writes, “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”

After years of fighting, years of tears, and so much heartache–it’s here. We must continue to fight for fair housing, safety from violence, and other basic human rights denied to so many (especially our trans* siblings of color), but today, today we celebrate.

Congratulations, and thank you to everyone who worked tirelessly to make this dream a reality!
