This morning, marriage equality arrived in New Zealand. I’m more equal as a citizen than I was yesterday, and more equal than in my native Illinois. Times have changed, and things have moved quickly, but justice always wins in the end.
There’s still more work to do to be sure that all our citizens are treated equally before the law and have the same opportunities to live happy and productive lives. The point of the celebrations like today’s is to be happy about how far we’ve come, and about what we’ve achieved. Then, it’s back to work.
