For those of you who have followed my blog, you know that I’m not running around waving the “Gay Marriage” flag. I’ve struggled with the issue, wondering how I relate to it, how my past, present, and future relate to it, and whether it’s something that I really completely understand.
Jay Jackson, a great dancer/choreographer that I worked with in LA this month, posted this video on his Facebook page, and I stumbled upon it in the top right hand corner stream. I read his comment and clicked on the link. I watched the video, and in the last few moments, I gasped.
I knew what was coming, and I still gasped and got really choked up about it.
Take a look. It’s full of truth. Deep truth about what it means to be committed to someone. And why people deserve the right to be recognized as living in a committed relationship, if that’s what they want.
I don’t mean to insinuate that all committed relationships have to be named the same way or look the same way. Absolutely not. I’d prefer that we maintain the freedom to be different and to define our relationships on a case by case basis, but this video clip is the most effective statement I’ve seen about marriage equality. And there’s no protesting or flag waving.
Simply put, lives are on display. Nothing more or less. Make sure you watch to the end.
Please take a look. And share with your friends and families.
