Day 67- On Marriage Equality

I was so happy to read this article on buzzfeed:
Mexico’s Quiet Marriage Equality Revolution

I’m so happy and proud to be a part of Mexico’s quiet revolution. Not only does this help the LGBT community, but acceptance of groups outside of the tight gendernormative box increases women’s rights movements-this includes the feminist movement, which is very necessary up here in Northern Mexico.

While the state I was born in and the state I currently live in are very conservative and I probably won’t be able to get married here during my lifetime, I’m happy the country as a whole is taking baby steps towards acceptance.

Also, I was very thrilled to hear that gay marriage was approved in Slovenia and currently waiting for the President’s signature. It will be in effect soon. 🙂
