Pride Month

June is Gay Pride Month. Let's celebrate this and embrace this. I'm fortunate to have grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area to experience some of the events that occur this whole month. This is also the month when same-sex couples can legally marry. Last month, the state Supreme Court overturned Proposition 22, a ballot measure that banned same-sex marriage, and on June 17, couples can get gender-neutral marriage licenses and wed. (Unfortunately, there is an intiative on the Nov. 4 ballot to ban same-sex marriage in California, and if the measure is passed, it will overturn the state court's ruling.)

***On a side note, I forgot to mention that May is National Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Need to include that albeit a month late.***
