I was just reading a post on one of the blogs I follow (New Civil Rights Movement) and realized that if I am to stay in America, I do indeed have to ask “What does my country do for me?”
The way it stands, my country CAN offer me full marriage rights. My country CAN offer me full housing and employment protections.
However, I need a country that WILL.
If the US doesn’t start treating the LGBT community right, I’ll have no choice but to move to Canada–where they DO treat us right.
I encourage you to do the same.
