3. Equality

The speech we have been waiting a lifetime for. I could not believe my ears. I remember struggling to get a mention in the Michigan Democratic party platform in the late eighties without actually being able to use the the word "gay." We had to substitute it with the word "human." For those of us who were in the movement in the seventies and eighties it took my breath away to be seen and acknowledged in a Presidential Inaugural address. I was humbled by the degree with which we have moved forward in my lifetime. America, land of dreams.
