To me this is better news than any half-assed SCOTUS decision we will be getting in the next few days! I don’t need the government to recognize my love for it to be valid. Do we really think forcing resistant states to recognize same-sex marraige will help our cause? Will it make a difference in the lives of southern queers who still won’t be able to show affection to their partners in public with out shame or fear? Will it bring back our dead; beaten and shot by our enemies? Will it affect queer youth being kicked out of their homes and forced to fuck middle class gay men for a living? “Mom marraige equality passed you don’t have to do this!” “We’re legally married you can stop beating us now!” True equality will come only when hateful groups like Exodus and community leaders stop telling people it’s ok to treat us as less than human. And before you reply, no I don’t think government recognition will garner us any more humanity in the eyes of the wicked. They already hate the Obama administration and the federal government why would they change their minds based on the governments opinion.
Here are some photos from the project I’ve been working on for the past few months on Queer Afrolatin@s. Check out this other post with one of the videos from the project.
