Why Can’t My Best Friend Get Married!?


إقرأ هذه القصة بالعربية

“By the authority vested in me, I now pronounce you husband and husband”.

Is it that hard to imagine two guys (or two girls) loving each other and tying the knot?

It’s not hard at all actually. But it’s almost impossible to come true in this country thanks to closed minded homophobes who spread hatred and intolerance.

According to my dear dictionary, “love is a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection”. I would like to emphasize on “all of human kindness”.

Now here’s MY definition of love. Love doesn’t restrain. Love doesn’t stereotype and differentiate. Love is respecting everyone and eliminating hatred. It’s the solution to every single problem existing in the world.

I don’t even like using labels because if it was up to me, people would all be equal and without any virtual barcodes on the back of their necks.

Everybody deserves to be loved and find their happy ending.

I’m not gay but I’m certainly not a homophobe. My best friend who I love to death is gay. That’s why I will be at the IDAHO event standing next to him to spread this message to the world!

Stay strong!

Your ally,

Carmen
