Catching Up in the Middle of the Motion of the Ocean of Change

So much has gone on since I last blogged:

Michael Sams is now an NFL player, and kissed his boyfriend, Vito, which caused a ruckus;

Jason Collins is playing basketball for the NBA in Brooklyn;

Arkansas now allows for marriage equality;

OH, OR, and even NC may be getting closer to marriage equality;

ENDA doesn't seem to be moving anywhere;

At NCCU where I teach, we had our first inaugural Lavender Graduation, which was also a kind of first for an HBCU, especially in the state of NC.

And finally, my friend Mark Chilton is going to be the Register of Deeds in Orange County, NC.  This means that, as of Jan. 1, 2015, when he is sworn in, he is going to be issuing marriage licenses to ALL who wish to marry/wed. 

More to come, now that another academic year has drawn to a close.
