First of all, congratulations to all of the people who can start planning their weddings!
I remember when same-sex was legalised here in Sweden (2009), it wasn't many years after I had come out of the closet and it was such a happy time! :')
EDIT: I just want to add, if someone entered this picture in hope to read something like and article then I'm sorry, as I will mention below, I can't say much in the place for everybody within LGBTQ. But this is an attempt to encourage people to research a bit about what LGBTQ stands for so you don't just put a flag up without even realising what it stands for!
I hope that people see this as an opportunity to educate others and yourself about LGBTQ. So that you can find ways to be more including and continue working towards equality with us. I'm not an exeption, I only belong to the L and every day I learn more things about transgenders, bisexuals, genderfluids, pansexuals and everybody else that is out there. Sometimes I even find out about terms I haven't even heard before! Understanding is the way to equality, for everybody.
I just want to remind people of the fact that there's more to this than just putting a pride flag on your profile picture. I ask of you to please continue to support LGBTQ even after this trend dies out. To stand up for us when people say homophobic things. To stand up for us when a hate crime is happening. Personally, I also want to ask you to educate your children (in an age appropriate way of course).
I've lived a sheltered life (by choice, I've never had the desire to get out a lot) so I haven't given homophobes many opportunities to take actions towards me, hence I'm pretty spared when it comes to hate crimes (except from people on the internet, but at least I haven't been hit or spit on because of my sexuality). My biggest issue was that nobody told me about it. Not the school, nobody at home and barely anything on TV either (even when I saw something on tv it was so distant that I just never related and thought that I could be lesbian myself). Causing me to think that I was sick (although a lot of homophobes in fact consider me sick now) and perverted for having the same feelings towards another girl which all of my friends had towards guys... Because I really thought that I was sick and perverted, I never told anyone about it. I don't want people to have to feel that way. Maybe I was the dumb one for not connecting the pieces, a lot of people know exactly how they are without anyone educating them. But I didn't and I wasted so many years trying to live like the norm.
I don't want people to have to do that. It sucks (in lack of better words). But what I do want people to get to experience, is going to bed at night snuggling up to someone and feeling that everything is as it should be. To get to hold someones hand and feeling really excited about it even though you're just... holding someones hand. Also sexy times. Sexy times with someone you love, that's a pretty nice thing right there but I may have minors following me so I'm probably going to end that thing... there. Then of course everybody should get to get married to the person they love, if their desire is to get married.
So this is a huge victory for equal rights. But I beg of you, if you're not a part of the LGBTQ, don't forget about us once the trend dies out will ya? It's a choice for you, it's not for us.
