"This made me cry. I am a lesbian and seeing how our love has always existed and how we have been ostracized by our government is impactful. Knowing that the government let (primarily) gay men and trans women die of AIDS hurts, knowing that people couldn't have legal access to partners dying of AIDS b/c gay marriage wasn't legal breaks my heart. Most of all, seeing how my community has stuck together and marched in the streets for our rights fills me with unmeasurable pride. We will never go away."
