Sara and I went to the Light Up The Night event organized by Marriage Equality and Join The Impact at Love Park in Philadelphia today. While the turnout was small due t0 the holiday season and freezing cold weather, the mood was good for the 35 or so demonstrators. A reporter from WHYY was capturing opinions, singing, and interviewing people including us. He seemed surprised that Sara and I were straight, still he reminded me that we’ve been fighting for equal rights for the GLBT community for years. For me, it’s been 18 years, and I have to admit that while things have improved, there’s a long way to go.
