Color Me Rainbow


"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest deals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a martial union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfilment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilisation's oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right. The judgement of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is reversed. It is so ordered." 

 - Supreme Court, 26 July 2015


We all have seen the struggles of the LGBT community throughout centuries and centuries. On June 26, 2015, our country recognized the importance of same-sex marriage which led to the legalization of all cross gender marriages. That was the day when we all stood hand in hand in celebration for the victory of a battle we knew we would win.
