The bar at the top of this new-post page is rainbow stripes. The White House was lit up with the colours of the rainbow. Twitter is adding a multi-coloured heart to the hashtag ‘LoveWins’. This can only mean one thing.
A rainbow unicorn has been let loose in America.
I’m kidding – SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IS LEGAL ACROSS ALL OF AMERICA!!!
You probably knew that. But if didn’t and instead you turn to this blog for all your major news stories then I must say that I am flattered. How great is this, though? I’m not American but to think of the power and influence the entire country has on a lot of opinions around the world, this is an extremely exciting time for people who support LGBT rights, and a huge step forwards in promoting equality across the planet.
I know that hundreds have people have worked extremely hard to achieve this for their country and I am well aware of all the people continuing to fight for equality in countries where same-sex marriage is not yet legal, but I hope that seeing this wonderful change in the United States has given people the courage to persevere and not give up.
Well done America!
