Crikey. I've been to parks in New York quite a few times, but haven't seen any tall black ladies strolling past in their bushes.

Must return. Ahem.

Loved this. It's not about making special rules for LBGT+ people because they are special.

It's about fairness and equality and justice. Why should the law bother itself with what two consenting adults do behind closed doors? Why should that make it impossible for a partner to visit their heart's mate in hospital?

Or to have a claim in the shared estate when they are grieving and empty?

It is marriage equality, and it is what everybody else has. LGBT+ folk don't somehow lose their humanity because of their gender preference. First and foremost, everybody is a human being, entitled to the support and protection and rights of the whole community.
