Perhaps my biggest takeaway from last night... #DNC2012

by Jeremy Hooper

…is that the President of the United States gave pointedly dismissive mention to "Washington politicians who want to decide who you can marry" and yet this is the first time I, one of this nation's biggest LGBT political geeks, is even mentioning it. I focused on the President's strong mention about gays (among other groups) not being America's scapegoat, but I didn't even rush to note the most powerful man in the world's specific note about marriage equality. Because there have now been so many.

I've always said that I work in hopes that I can render my own work irrelevant. We have a ways to go and could face some serious setbacks ahead (NO COMPLACENCY!). But I do kind of feel like I'm watching/living the teaser trailer of a future that I always knew was inevitable.
