The Marriage Plot: Inside This Year’s Epic Campaign for Gay Equality

I’m doing a project on marriage equality, and I found this link particularly illuminating for anyone who might be interested in what kind of went down in this past election cycle when it comes to marriage equality.

Hey QueerWes,

So I went to one of our meetings tonight, and what should we be talking about, but this blog! General consensus was we needed more posts, so I decided to write up a short something about my own current frustration with my queer life.

This week’s/month’s/six month’s frustration:

I’m a female who identifies as bisexual. Being queer has always been an important part of my life, ever since I told my mother at the age of six (or so) that I wanted to be gay when I grew up. However, six months ago (or so) I got engaged to a man. I love him dearly, and he is very much an ally to the queer community, but I’m not sure how he fits into the saga of my queer life. I’m very aware of the hetero-normative decisions I’m making, and thus I feel somewhat ostracized from something that has been an important piece of me in terms of making friends and being involved in something larger. My frustration lies in how to continue communicating to people that I am queer, regardless of the ring on my finger.

So that’s my ongoing frustration. Thanks for reading!
