I get and appreciate the idea of boycotting North Carolina. I'm going to, but only because I live 3 time zones away and I don't have to be there.
But I live in a state that already has a constitutional amendment, and is bordered only by other states that have such a constitutional amendment. And most of them have had such amendments for years.
So...I don't have any choices. I'm IN. I'm in because in 32 states there is no choice, and I still need somewhere to live, somewhere to work, and somewhere to call home. I've never lived anywhere where I had marriage equality, and I'm betting that it's unlikely I will for years yet.
So...I'm IN. I'm in to live, to work, to love, to be out to my friends, neighbors, family, and whoever notices. I'm IN - to stay and fight. I -- and millions of others like me -- have no choice.
Thank you to those of you who support us in word and in deed. For those who are ballot-bashed tonight in North Carolina, I am so very sorry. I know how it feels. Remember that living well is the best revenge. And for the large number in North Carolina that voted for this latest vicious bully bill - fuck you. You will regret it.
For everyone here in Nevada - and for California, Alaska, Hawaii, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Utah, Colorado, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Wisconsin, Michigan, Kentucky, Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina, Ohio, Virginia, and, unfortunately, now North Carolina - I'm IN.
