To me, this letter by a megacorp – opportunistic as it might be – impressively illustrates the tipping point that has been reached on LGBT rights in the USA.
We are so far from an equal society, yet sometimes you just have to pause and appreciate the progress we're making.

What do the signs mean?
- Mine questions the framing of heterosexuality as normality, see http://maybemaimed.com/2014/04/17/heterosexuality-is-a-fetish-why-wasnt-it-ever-in-the-dsm/
- “Heterolike” is the German(-ish) version of “straight-acting”, a term used on dating websites to police role conformity even within the queer community. (It does not at all mean that anyone dislikes heterosexuals.)
- “Not born this way” refers to how queer rights are often “justified” by pointing to the naturality of different sexualities, which shouldn't be the standard for securing human rights and which is a focus that can be exclusive of trans* people.

More than 80 countries around the world still criminalize consensual homosexual conduct ... More than half those countries have these laws because they once were British colonies. ... It was a colonial attempt to set standards of behavior, both to reform the colonized and to protect the colonizers against moral lapses. ...
In recent decades, judges, public figures and political leaders have defended [these] laws as citadels of nationhood and cultural authenticityHomosexuality, they now claim, comes from the colonizing West. They forget the West brought in the first laws enabling governments to forbid and repress it. ... Much of this fierce opposition stem[s] from Christian churches—themselves, of course, hardly homegrown in their origins.

There's a documentary about the amazing Rae Spoon coming out. The soundtrack is being released as a new album too – regrettably leaving behind the electronics of the last two though. If you're intrigued, go for this one first.

We fight to make gay marriage legal so that when we disdain it we do so by choice and not by necessity.

Things we want to get away from are:
1. exclusiveness, propertied attitudes toward each other, a mutual pact against the rest of the world;
2. promises about the future, which we have no right to make and which prevent us from, or make us feel guilty about, growing;
3. inflexible roles, roles which do not reflect us at the moment but are inherited through mimicry and inability to define equalitarian relationships. ...
We’ve been playing an act for a long time, so we’re consummate actors. Now we can begin to be, and it’ll be a good show!

So dankbar ich für die Zeit bin, die ich mit meinen zwei Vätern verbringen durfte, so sehr widert es mich an, wenn ich immer und immer wieder erklären muss, warum homosexuelle Menschen natürlich Kinder adoptieren dürfen müssen. ... Obwohl die Situation offensichtlich ist, haben wir noch immer einen weiten Weg zu gehen, bis es endlich selbstverständlich ist, dass wer Liebe geben kann, dies ganz selbstverständlich auch darf.

The US has publicly declared it will fight discrimination against LGBT people abroad ("one of the remaining human rights challenges of our time") by using foreign aid and diplomacy to encourage reform. "Being gay is not a western invention, it is a human reality", said Hillary Clinton in Geneva.

The idea that it's easier to [wait for people to] die than change says a lot, and none of it comforting, about how little potential we see in ourselves, how rigid we think we are, trapped in some kind of evolutionary psychology/sociological hell where progress is dependent on those who know perfectly well that all they have to do is be loud enough, rigid enough, difficult enough that they can hold up movement simply by standing still. ...

Change is what happens when we stop waiting.

We've had too many generations of casualties already; no one, no one should have it demanded of them to be a sacrifice to the idea [that] the only way to move [is] slowly.
Seperis [liberally quoted]

Auf der Demo gegen das diskriminierende Partnerschaftsrecht
Besonders wertvoll: Celia Mara, Lilly Allen zum mitsingen und die wirklich gute Rede von Amir Ahmed, der zwischendurch mal im LIF-Führungsteam war. Zu schade, dass auch er sich mittlerweile scheinbar mit dem Rest zerstritten hat... (photo by erstklassigeRechte)
