America has a lot of faults, but our founding documents have something within them that enables marginalized and disenfranchised Americans to eventually secure their liberty. The time it takes is too long, and the struggle is too painful, but I believe Dr. King and what he said about the arc of history. Our president is proof.
And now may be gay liberation's time, when we can fully lay claim to our birthright as Americans. We shall see if the tipping point has arrived next June, which is just about seven months from now.
This is the true American dream, and those who have struggled and overcame nearly impossible odds fill me with hope.
The founding fathers couldn't have conceived the idea of a gay rights movement. But they gave America the machinery for those who are motivated to secure freedom and keep it.
By the people and for the people - it means something.
