  • "It's so weird to be back here.
    Let me tell you what
    The years go on and
    We're still fighting it, we're still fighting it
    Oh, we're still fighting it, we're still fighting it "

    - from the song "Still Fighting It" by Ben Folds

    On September 27, 2008, my husband and I got married in San Francisco, California. We are one of the 18,000 +/- same-sex couples who are still recognized as legally married by the State of California and twelve other states in the nation.

    We hope to see a change in opinion on a national level within our lifetime. In the meantime, we are doing our share to fight for equality and social justice for all.
