Just 45 years ago, Virginia police invaded the home of the Lovings and arrested them for interracial marriage.
They were married in June 1958 - not in their native Virginia, where their interracial union was illegal - but 80 miles away in Washington, D.C.
Upon returning home, they were arrested in their bedroom. On Jan. 6, 1959, the Lovings pleaded guilty to two sections of Virginia law, one that prohibited interracial couples from marrying outside of state and returning, and the other that held miscegenation to be a felony. The sentence was suspended if the couple agreed to move out of Virginia for 25 years. Judge Leon M. Bazile declared that God separated the races because “he did not intend for the races to mix.”

51% of Americans Approve of Gay Marriage

Every day we wake up next to our partners, we make breakfast together, we read the paper, we socialize with friends, we watch TV, we listen to records, we make decisions, we call our moms, we get groceries, we cheer for our favorite sports teams, and we go to bed late. Every day life feels as normal as life can ever really feel.

And then the world we live in reminds us that they don’t think we’re normal. They take polls on whether or not we should have the same rights that they take for granted.

As much as we are politically active, and constantly fighting for equality, these reminders of how many people fundamentally disapprove of us, without even knowing us, is deeply troubling.
