Great Argument for Marriage Equality

Last February, a video began circulating around the internet that showed a man speaking in an Iowa court defending the right for same sex couples to be married. I didn’t get a chance to post or comment on it back then. It’s now making a resurgence around Facebook and Twitter, so I want to post it and say just how much I appreciate his articulation of his experience of family. Check out the video below.

It’s well articulated. Persuasive. And I already agreed with him before watching the video.

This guy used a courtroom to tell his story. It’s a story that still needs to be heard.

How can we help kids who are being victimized or struggling with these issues of sexuality (whether their own or with their parents) so that they don’t take the route so many have by harming themselves? How can we, as a society, foster an environment for growth and holistic health for everyone in our communities? Not just white, heterosexual males with proper documentation of citizenship.

These are the questions that keep me up at night. And probably will continue to.
