Of course we have a long way to go to true equality – but I’m feeling very happy about more steps towards marriage equality.
Not that it’s about me! But as a person who loves weddings and freedom to choose who you love and equality it is a pretty joyful step. Of course we still don’t have hate crime laws and other basic protections. In Columbus, OH – which has a reputation for being very queer friendly – there have been multiple instances of homophobic violence just these last few weeks. It’s going to be a long struggle for true justice and equality. But I think one way that quilters show love and support in times of need and in times of joy is through a quilt.
