I told my grandma I was writing a legislative speech and her response:
“ If it’s about gay rights you tell them your mom and grandma were highly suspicious when you were 4,5 or 6.. Chosen lifestyle my ass.. Baby you were born this way, tell them that…….love ya, -G”
Happy National Coming Out Day

What a week it’s been for marriage equality - California, Washington and now Illinois?
The state’s three openly gay representatives yesterday introduced the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act, which would give same-sex couples equal marriage rights. This comes about a year after Illinois started offering gay couples civil unions, but it’s become clear yet again that separate is not equal.
“In following experiences of thousands of couples in civil unions over the past year, we confirmed what we always suspected to be true: that creating a separate institution to provide substantially the same rights did not add up to full equality under the law,” Cherkasov said in a press release. “A pharmacist who denied prescription pickup to the patient’s civil union partner didn’t think it’s the same thing as marriage. A coroner who refused to issue a death certificate to civil union partner survivor did not think that civil unions are the same as marriage.”
I’m currently attending school in Illinois, so this is exceptionally exciting. Hoping with all my might to see this succeed before graduating!
finally. It best be passed!
