Supporting Equal Love At Royal WeddingApril 26, 2011 No Comments
As we all anxiously await for the moment William and Kate profess their love to each other in front of millions of viewers and live spectators, those who don’t fit into the neat and tidy heterosexual category are sure to feel slighted.
If you fit somewhere within LGBTI, it’s a hard pill to swallow that the royal couple can celebrate their love in a formal marriage ceremony and the laws prohibit them to do the same.
So they’re taking a peaceful stand outside of Buckingham Palace in the name of love and marriage. Protesters are asking the prince and soon-to-be-princess to help make marriage a possibility for all couples who are in love by presenting them with a giant wedding card. If it’s symbolic for them to unite in marriage, why wouldn’t it be significant for all couples who are in love?
Organized by Equal Love and OutRage!, this is a strong campaign that exposes the hypocrisy of British law, which fails to recognize absolute equality when it comes to the ultimate declaration of love and commitment. These groups are rounding up people passionate about their cause as they fight to overturn bans on same-sex marriage and opposite-sex civil partnerships.
Despite their exclusions, the LGBTI crowd puts any bitterness aside to congratulate the couple, proving that maybe love really can move mountains.
The card reads “Equal=Love“. Damn straight.
