Distraught, 12-years-old, quilts raised over my face only revealing my eyes, one of the litany of questions I asked my parents that night after I told them I was gay was, "but... I want to get married and have kids?" Their response at the time was apt--"you can." The same question reverberated through my mind and the minds of others for years to come.
With the latter part of that question fulfilled, today surely marks the day the former is settled as well.
You can question the institution in theory but you cannot question it in it's symbolism, at least not at this moment.
So, a big fuck YES to marriage equality, and a big thank you to @karao for letting me use this painting 😉😘❤️💜💙💚💛🌈🌈 Remember this moment. #MarriageEquality #Australia #VotedYes
