Time Event
Happy Anniversary!
It's March 3rd, 2005. For anyone unfamiliar with the significance of that date, it's been a year since Multnomah County started issuing marriage licenses for same-sex marriages. As I noted last year, I'm mostly cheering from the sidelines, as it affects the lives of my friends more than it does me directly. So I won't say much about it, except to point out that a friend of mine is writing a book about her experience.
An excerpt is on her website.

Actually, I will say something else: I fervently wish that history will record these marriages as the leading edge of a major cultural civil-rights paradigm shift, on par with women's sufferage and racial desegregation. And that I'll be sending anniversary greetings to my friends every March 3rd, for the rest of my life.

Current Mood: cheerful
