My Story

Growing up in conservative West Michigan, I watched lesbian and gay friends and family members struggle to be accepted and be treated equally. There are gains and losses in this fight every day, and it is vital for LGBT individuals and their straight allies to stand up and to pay attention.

In Case Anyone Forgot About (Love)

This is what love looks like:



Married 2011



Married 1992

My Grandparents, Married 1952



Married 2005 (actually a civil partnership)

Married 2008 (but without federal rights)



Together since the '90s (but unmarried because of inequality)

My Sister, Coco Lam, and Casey Watson, To Be Married July 14th, 2012! (will they have equal rights?)




Happy Day After Valentine's Day 

Shouldn't we all get to (love) without (parentheses)?
