Dept. of Still Work to Do

The "But" in the Marriage Rights Victory

As I rejoiced and happy-danced this morning in the wake of the SCOTUS decision on marriage rights, I was also sadly aware that we have not yet won the battle, not by any stretch of the imagination. Lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and non-binary people in the United States, especially young people and people of color, still face life and death issues unfairly imposed on them by law, by heteronormative culture, and by us, when we fail to try to change the way things still stand. This is a brief, but pretty clear reminder.
