Election 2012: What a Night!

I almost don’t want to go to sleep in case I might be dreaming. I can’t think of a more decisive rebuke to the forces of obstructionism, hatred, bigotry, divisiveness, and discrimination.

The most outspokenly pro-LGBT president in American history won re-election, defeating the most unapologetically dishonest candidate in my memory.

For the first time in history, when marriage equality was put up to a popular vote, it WON. THREE TIMES.

The state of Minnesota defeated a marriage discrimination amendment.

Because Wisconsin elected Tammy Baldwin, the upcoming 113th Congress will contain the first openly gay U.S. Senator in history.

Dangerous anti-woman extremists were defeated in several high-profile Senate races across the country.

Michele Bachmann and Allen West are fighting for survival.

And the next Congress will contain a record number of out LGBT members.

I am absolutely speechless. What an exhilarating, thrilling time to be alive. Equality is coming!!
