First things first … CONGRATULATIONS NEW YORK!!! As a born and bred NYC native I could not be more proud of the representatives who saw the future and had the courage to pass this bill. To all of those who persevered  Kudos!!!
With July 4th around the corner, in the light of New York’s approval of Gay Marriage, in this month when we recognize and honor all of those who came before and stood up for equal rights (List of pre Stonewall LGBT actions) Keith Olbermann’s ‘Special Comment’ from 2008 after the election, touches the heart and soul of some key issues of great value to everyone.

Feel the LOVE

To all of the young people who may come across this know that you are not alone. We are many, we are strong and getting stronger with each passing day. But each day requires we get through it to keep growing, to keep loving, to keep becoming. Don’t give in to the sometimes overwhelming feelings. Life does get better. Life does have a brighter side. Life is worth living. You will find your stride. And when you do, and you are just gonna have to trust me on this point for now, you will look back just as Joel Burns did, and be grateful for all that transpired that got you to where you are at. A wonderful, loving caring human full of compassion and understanding your struggles brought to you. Live a long happy life and prove to the world, to yourself that you are a great and wonderful addition to our world.

Argentina Makes History

¿Qué puedo decir? En la tierra de los libres y el hogar de los valientes todavía no han adoptado e incluyen todos los mismos derechos que se les da a algunos. Sin embargo, hoy, la Argentina se convierte en la primera nación de América Latina para hacer una decisión histórica y añadió su voz a la creciente demanda igualdad para todos. Hoy, la comunidad LGBT argentino ha ganado el derecho de nacimiento para hacer los mismos compromisos entre dos personas para compartir una vida de amor y cariño junto con todos los atributos inherentes como sus homólogos heterosexuales.

Como lesbiana, Puertorriqueña, nacida y criada en los EE.UU. comparto la alegría que brinda a nuestros vecinos al sur aunque todavía tenemos que lograr los mismos derechos aquí. Yo espero y rezo para que esto establecerá una base sólida para otras naciones para aprovechar a medida que continuamos la marcha hacia una comunidad global que honra y respeta a todos sus ciudadanos con la misma pasión y el entusiasmo sólo unos pocos han tenido el privilegio de.

Argentina podría haber no ha colocado en los tres primeros de la Copa del Mundo (a pesar de que jugó una increíble serie), pero que definitivamente han colocado en el lugar Número Uno por la igualdad. Felicitaciones a los 33 senadores que dejar de lado las diferencias y votaron a favor de la inclusión.

Ahora, esperando a que mi invitación a la boda de @yovanu y @Lipitus. Ellas han compartido su vida por los últimos diez años. Finalmente ahora pueden compartir el resto de sus vidas protegidas con los mismos derechos y privilegios que a sus compatriotas.

For us yankees:

What can I say? In the land of the free and the home of the brave we have yet to embrace and include all to same rights as are given to some. Yet today, Argentina becomes the 1st Latin American nation to make a landmark decision and added its voice to the growing din demanding equality for all. Today the Argentinian LGBT community has won the birthright to make the same commitments between two individuals to share a loving and caring life together with all the inherent attributes as their heterosexual counter parts.

As a lesbian, Puerto Rican, born and raised in the USA I share in the joy afforded to our neighbors down under though we have yet to achieve the same rights here. I hope and pray that this will set a solid foundation for other nations to build on as we continue the march toward a global community that honors and respects all of its citizens with the same passion and enthusiasm only a select few have had the privilege of.

Argentina may have not have placed in the top three of the World Cup (though they played an incredible series) but, they have definitely placed in the Numero Uno spot for equality. KUDOS to the 33 Senators that set aside differences and voted for inclusion.

Now,  waiting for my invitation to @yovanu @Lipitus wedding. They have shared their lives for the last ten years. Finally they can now share the rest of their lives protected with the same rights and privileges as their compatriots.
