VICTORY: the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals has just struck down Viriginia’s ban on marriage for same-sex couples. The decision marks the second time since SCOTUS struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act last year that a federal appeals court has declared that state laws denying same-sex couples the freedom to marry or refuse to recognize the out-of-state marriages of same-sex couples are unconstitutional.

I am so glad you guys are now doing this. I always felt like I couldn't embrace me being Puerto Rican because I was mixed and don't "look Hispanic". People need to understand that people all look different and that looks don't determine race. So, thank you for spreading that message. Hopefully, all of this can stop. 😊
