Holy crap, I didn't expect that to make me cry. Liberty/Justice forever.

One of the articles I read pointed out that it's been almost 46 years to the day since the Stonewall riots -- which is how old I am. So that's a cool perspective on it, from my point of view. I can say, "In my lifetime, we got from there, all the way to here."

(Here's hoping for more awesome justice in the upcoming portion of my lifetime!)

Holy fuck! It's 12 years to the day Kennedy wrote the opinion decriminalizing same-sex activity, too, and I think it's two years to the day that DOMA and Prop 8 were struck down.

Holy fucking keysmash I don't even know. I was not expecting to live to see this. Wow.

Such wonderful news to wake up to. :) I'm still boggling (in a good way) at how hugely support for it has snowballed in the last 15 years. I never would've guessed, just a few years ago, that we'd get to this point so quickly.

I was grinning in delight for all my American friends as my twitter feed erupted this afternoon. Not quite as cool as Justice snogging Liberty, but one I really liked was that @White_House had turned their White House logo rainbow-coloured for the occasion.

Gay marriage was made legal in my province before it was legal across the country, so the national decision here didn't affect too many people I knew. But one of the things I remember best about the provincial decision was *how incredibly happy* the staff at City Hall were. It was like one big giant City Hall party for weeks. It seemed like they'd been waiting almost as eagerly as the couples themselves.

I've been going through today in a perpetual state of "holy shit!!"

I mean, I expected it in my lifetime. It was obvious it was going to happen nationally in the US sometime soonish. But, you know, five to ten years out, maybe twenty, I kept thinking. In my nephews and niece's day.

But no. Holy cow!!

Apparently Seattle painted their crosswalks rainbow colours? :D

I'm so thrilled! I have been involved in this cause for years! Lots of years!

It's made it a really fantastic Pride in Seattle. [grin] So many happy people! I really wish that I had thought of this yesterday... the backpack 5k I did, those folks generally bring and carry giant American flags. I wish I had had a Pride flag; I totally would have carried that!

From: [identity profile]

Yes, such exciting news! Timely too, with Pride this weekend. Here the flags! Are everywhere! The railings encircling the escalators even at Nordstrom are lit up in rainbow colors. <3

(That's Sir Derek Jacobi too, I am just sayin'. And I have shaken both their hands, these theatrical knights. I'm not much in favour of the honours system as a whole, but I do love the tradition of giving knighthoods to vagabondy disreputable queer actor types.)

From: [identity profile]

YAY, yes yesterday's ruling was so special!!

when i think of all my friends who have been treated badly as a couple, yesterday was great!!!
