“When an individual is protesting society’s refusal to acknowledge his dignity as a human being, his very act of protest confers dignity on him.”—Bayard Rustin
Equality for all, regardless of skin color is not enough today. We are still in pursuit of our basic human rights as same-gender loving people and until we have access to our full rights, we can’t afford to be silent about this matter.
So while I am taking the time to remember a man that worked so hard to make my life better, I am also choosing to follow Dr. King’s lead and not be silent on things that matter, which includes the right to marry the woman that I love and the right for you to marry the person that you love regardless of their sex.
The struggle continues.
Happy King Day!
