There are rare moments when I like humanity. This is one of those:

60 Awesome Portraits of Gay Couples Just Married in New York

I have my reservations about marriage as an institution--just had to throw that out there--but this isn't about marriage. It's about equality. These people's lives will go on pretty much the same, save for a few legal perks, and they know that, but they are no longer being denied those perks because of discrimination! This is a beautiful thing.

The snarky bitch in me must quip, "Now, they can be equally as miserable as the rest of us!" Ok, now that that's out of the way: the beauty is that they have choice, and that LGBT rights are inching forward. This is an incredible milestone, and I'm so excited!!!!!

Many, many happy thoughts for these people and those who have helped them reach this goal. What an amazing thing when people can work together, and can let people just be themselves without judgment and quit trying to squish people into a neat little box.
