We Are Orlando

Hurray for the USA!

As you may have heard, today the United States have legalised same-sex marriages. It is a massive step forward, especially for a country which claims it is the land of the free, but that is not always the case. But that is a completely different discussion.

It is a strange day though. Today there have also been three terrorist attacks in the world. Terrible crimes in which innocent lives were lost. But despite people being horrified by this, it does not frighten me. We should not be afraid. Because the news of marriage equality has shown us that love wins. Love conquers all. Those who want to do bad in the world can try to tear us apart but in the end it only makes us stronger. It unites us. It makes us raise our voices until it drowns out the evil in the world.

How I’d love to be a fly on the wall at the Westboro Baptist Church right now. But let’s be honest, if they are going to heaven as they claim they are, then it will be much more fun to have a party in hell. But what they think does not matter now. Gay marriage is now just marriage. It does not matter if you love a man or a woman. It does not matter who you are or what you consider your identity. Know that no matter if the road gets hard, your fabulousness will light your way. It has brought marriage equality in the USA today. Maybe if we keep on fighting, it will bring equality for all around the world.

So raise your glasses! Shake that glitter! Hug a stranger and kiss someone you love. We’re getting closer to love taking over even the darkest corners of the world.
