We had been planning a February 14 Love contest to give away a cabin on our Danube Riverboat Cruise, and to our pleasant surprise, Washington State and California decided to trump Saint Valentine’s. So instead of giving away a romantic all-gay cruise for two just because it’s that time of year, we get to celebrate being two steps closer to attaining equality and protection for our most cherished relationships.
There are so many powerful stories of commitment and love in our community. For a long time we had to hide our relationships, and many of us have gone to great lengths to be together. I truly believe that the more we can celebrate our love and tell our stories, the better our chances of adding even more states to the slowly growing list.
So please share your LGBT love stories with us, or nominate your favorite couple. We would be honored to hear them. Go to our Facebook page for more details of the contest.
