Happy IDAHOT Day, 10th Anniversary of Massachusetts Marriage Equality

Saturday, May 17th, 2014

Gay RightsWe have two reasons to celebrate today – IDAHOT Day and the tenth anniversary of Massachusetts marriage equality.

LGBTQ Nation reports on IDAHOT (aka IDAHO) Day:

LGBT rights advocates and allies will observe the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia (or IDAHOT) in more than 100 countries around the world on Saturday. First recognized in 2004, IDAHO commemorates the May 17, 1990 decision by the World Health Organization that decategorized homosexuality as a mental disorder, and aims to coordinate international events that raise awareness of LGBT rights violations and stimulate interest in LGBT rights advocacy. Now, ten years later, same-sex relationships are still considered illegal in 82 countries around the world, and punishable by jail, fines and in some countries, lifetime imprisonment. In ten countries, a conviction is punishable by death.

Today also happens to be the tenth anniversary of marriage equality in the state of Massachusetts.

Boston.com reports:

On May 17, 2004, the state of Massachusetts offered the first official marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Ten years later, to commemorate the momentous occasion, we asked five Boston-area married couples to talk about what they’ve learned about themselves and their relationships over the past decade. When we opened the inquiry for the project, the response was tremendous. While we weren’t able to respond to each and every submission we received (we wish we could have!), we spoke with a handful of same-sex couples, who not only appear to have the utmost respect for each other, but also exude tremendous amounts of unabashed and unapologetic love.

Two great reasons to celebrate – remember, we shall overcome.
