“Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions.”
“They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.”
Honestly, when I read it, naiyak ako! We are one step closer to achieving equal rights. We are one step away from discrimination.
Some say, bakit ba kasi kailangan pang ikasal? Kapirasong papel lang yun. Hayaan nalang. But that kapirasong papel would surely make a difference.
Imagine those gay couples who's been together for 20, 30 years. They have built everything together, but they could never call anything they built as conjugal property. Imagine not having hospitalization rights? Imagine mo? You spent half of your life with a person but on your death bed, and the hospital asks for "immediate family", ni hindi dun kasama ang taong mahal mo. You can't even adopt a child together because you will never be considered a "family". Marami pa. Maraming nagagawa ang kapirasong papel na yun.
Let us give each and everyone the right to live the life they want to live. And I beg to the LGBT community and the LGBT supporters to fight hate with love. Because more than anybody else, we should know that #LoveWins, all the time.
