New High Mark for Support for Marriage Equality

While we here at Self Evident Truths know there’s more to equality than marriage, we’re still excited to read this piece of great news!

From the Advocate: 

According to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll, 53% of Americans support marriage rights for same-sex couples — a record high for the survey — while opposition has plummeted to unprecedented lows.”

Just days after openly supporting same-sex marriage, President Obama spoke at Barnard College’s commencement ceremony, and gave the LGBTQ community quite a few shout-outs.

Liz, our production assistant and member of the Barnard Class of 2013, was there and loved every minute of it.

Here’s an amazing section from his speech on the power of activism:

Remember that making your mark on the world is hard. It takes patience. It takes commitment. It comes with plenty of setbacks and it comes with plenty of failures. 

But whenever you feel that creeping cynicism, whenever you hear those voices say you can’t make a difference, whenever someone tells you to set your sights lower, the trajectory of this country should give you hope.

Previous generations should give you hope. What young generations have done before should give you hope. Young folks who marched and mobilized and stood up and sat in, from Seneca Falls to Selma to Stonewall, didn’t just do it for themselves. They did it for other people.

That’s how we achieved women’s rights, that’s how we achieved voting rights, that’s how we achieved workers’ rights, that’s how we achieved gay rights, that’s how we’ve made this union more perfect.

And if you’re willing to do your part now, if you’re willing to reach up and close that gap between what America is and what America should be, I want you to know that I will be right there with you. If you’re ready to fight for that brilliant, radically simple idea of America that no matter who you are or what you look like, no matter who you love or what god you worship, you can still pursue your own happiness, I will join you every step of the way. “


Obama’s finally recognizing the power and importance of our queer community!


p.s. Evan Wolfson was also honored at the ceremony — way to go, Barnard!

Oh dear. TEARJERKER ALERT. 

This just in from the Brits, who are debating whether or not to legalize same sex marriage, nationwide. CUTE.

After 40 years of marriage, this Nevada couple is suing for their right to marry, trying to take the marriage equality fight from a different, more direct angle.

A little wisdom from Jeriah in Knoxville, TN.
