Equality Day

To add to my trope of making June 26 EQUALITY DAY ...
·      Lawrence v. Texas  June 26, 2003  ...guarantees right to intimate relationships among gay and lesbians
·      Windsor v. U.S. June 26, 2013 ...  overturns as unconstitutional key provisions of Federal anti-marriage act (DOMA)
·      Hollingsworth v. Perry  June 26, 2013  ... lets stand the famous Perry v. Schwarzenegger trial outcome, under which California's anti-gay Prop. 8 was found to be unconstitutional
·      Obergefell v. Hodges ... Marriage is a constitutional right that cannot be denied on the basis of sexual orientation

Let's carry on the momentum; let's have a new era with a NEW ERA (Equal Rights Amendment), by adding a few words to the original, and let's get it passed this time.

"Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex, gender or sexual orientation."
