As I compose this post, the WordPress admin toolbar at the top of the page has a rainbow background. On social media, corporations have reworked their logos in rainbow hues. Over in the USA, rainbow flags are waving all over the place as same-sex couples rock up to courthouses and get married following SCOTUS ruling that state government bans on same-sex marriage violated constitutional guarantees granted by the 14th Amendment for all citizens to equal rights and protections under the law.
Congratulations to all those in the USA who now have marriage equality thanks to 5 of the Supremes voting for constitutionality. Commiserations to my Australian friends who do not yet have marriage equality – a strong majority of Australian citizens support it, it must happen soon. I look forward to dancing at your weddings.
