This morning, the first thing I did when I woke up, was roll over and reach for my phone, check the time, and then immediately check Facebook. I was looking for one thing: news about LGBT folks getting married. Because last night, the judge determined that the ban against gay marriage was unconstitutional – !! Fantastic news. Of course, things are still unsettled – the Attorney General are calling for a stay on the ruling, which would otherwise go into effect on Monday. However, certain county clerks around the state decided to open their offices today (lovely, heroic folks) and grant as many licenses as they physically could in the time they were open.
So this morning, I was glued to Facebook and Twitter, watching photos and announcements pop up of friends getting married and others officiating and witnessing. Happy day!
