I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.
In an ABC interview today, President Obama has officially endorsed the rights of same-sex couples to get married.
OBAMA: I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together, when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage, at a certain point I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same sex couples should be able to get married.
OH MY GOD.

3 months ago I came out to my homophobic mom.
I told myself if she couldn’t love me for who I was then I didn’t need her. I knew I was lying to myself.
As soon as I told her she drove to my college and told me she was sorry for everything she’d ever said and told me I was absolutely perfect.
Her unexpected and much needed love and support GMH.
We can gladly say, everyday is better than the last.
When you come, you should totally join. We’re a totally gnarly crew - the cool kids still say that right? :D We’re looking forward to meeting you!
