Today, the US Supreme Court is hearing arguments on whether or not Marriage Equality is a Constitutional Right. I support marriage equality. Too many bright, vibrant lives have been cut short by discrimination and violence against homosexuals: in 2011, “anti-gay” murders reached an all-time high in the United States. Victims like Matthew Shepard (who was brutally murdered) and Tyler Clementi (who committed suicide after being outed and humiliated) are no longer here to speak for themselves. It’s time to stand up for tolerance and equality.
