Washington DC Couple Love Story

From the Washington Post comes the touching love story of the first same sex couple to apply for a marriage license in DC.  They wed today.

“This is for everyone who wants to get married,” she says. She used to run a support group for black LGBT women and would end sessions by inviting everyone to submit questions for the group to talk about. One day she unfolded a slip of paper that read, “I feel like committing suicide, but I'm scared.” To this day, whenever Young is out, she looks for the writer of that note. She has never seen her.

“I am doing this because I love my partner and we deserve to be married,” Young says. “But I am also doing this because the first one is always the hardest.”

Someone has to pave the way. She still may run into that woman, and if she does she wants to be able say, “Now, sweetheart. Now you can come through the door.”
