Marriage, Trans & Lesbian Style

Love. It’s a marvelous thing.

The Melissa Harris Perry Show highlighted the December 6th marriage of Liz Margolies and Scout — a marriage of a lesbian and a trans man.

If anyone tells you marriage equality isn’t a trans issue, they likely don’t get that marriages like Liz’s and Scout’s would not be recognized as valid in at least four states: Florida, Kansas, Texas, and Tennessee. They have the Loving v. Virginia problem of their marriage likely dissolving when crossing at a handful of state lines.

Many congratulations for Liz and Scout — I wish many happy years together for them both!
