And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Our Sweet, Gay Hearts Are Filled With The Colors of the Rainbow

To echo the Huffington Post: DING! DONG! DOMA IS DEAD!

But not just the Defense of Marriage Act, but the rights of Californians to marry their significant other was re-instated.  What a beautiful day it is!

No matter how you look at it, we will forever be part of history.  We move from this day forward to a brighter and more vibrant future than ever before. Where the colors of the rainbow will dwell in our hearts and souls for a lifetime.  Where we can live with another, gay or straight and be happy with the ones we love.  

Yes, my partner, Ryan and I live in the state of Texas, and as disappointed as we may be that gay marriage is not allowed in this state, today's rulings give us hope that it will come soon, very soon.  I love the state in which I was born and the city in which I live, and moving is not something I would ever contemplate of doing. But today is a big step forward for ALL Americans, as we are equal in the eyes of the Lord and this country.  God Bless us all!

YEAH MY LOVE! I'm so happy for us both. Just for kicks I checked out Foxnews as well. I believe the headline said something like: Supreme Court strikes down DOMA, Homosexuals can again marry in California.....with the picture of two flamboyant gays hi fiving while kicking their heels in the air. Bastards, but oh well, it's our victory and we're celebrating!
