Today is a big step in our march toward equality. Gay and lesbian couples now have the right to marry, just like anyone else. #LoveWins

Pride festivals this weekend will be bonkers. If our NYC office is ecstatic, and we can only imagine what happening in the office of NYCPride itself. (Nothing, it turns out, as they were at the newly landmarked Stonewall celebrating.)

San Franciscans will be waking up to some happy news, too, as SFPride begins.
I don't know if you've heard, but Marriage Equality is the law of the land….
