"Thanks, mom," Sam Greisman captioned the photo of them attending a gala.
The "impact will be devastating," one queer rights advocate wrote.
Today, after much work on the ground and through the state legislature, California stands as a shining beacon for LGBT equality -- but the religious right has not given up its crusade.
The Human Rights Campaign doesn't speak for the LGBT community, and the sooner that politicians and those in the media grasp that, the smarter they will be.
As we in our own community strive to be more inclusive, it was encouraging to hear Clinton speak of the need for inclusiveness in government, the military and society as a whole.
f you're a public person, take some of those aha insights, well, public. Pitch them to media friends. You might just be quoted next to the Pope. Wait, did I talk about this yesterday? Hmmm. Deja vu all over again.

When your premise is that the marriage equality revolution began in 2008, that the movement was only then re-branded around
"President Jonathan of Nigeria is one of the most dangerous anti-LGBT leaders that we have in the world today," Griffin said
