A Personal Journey into Gay Marriage in a Heteronormative Society: Or...How Many Times Do We Have to Get "Married" in Order to Have Our Rights in the USA?
King, Kathleen P.
New Horizons in Adult Education & Human Resource Development, v24 n1 p71-77 Win 2010
Understanding the continuing struggle for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) equality can be difficult for people who have not experienced the issues firsthand. This brief article describes the journey of one woman and her female partner as they repeatedly seek to make their lifetime commitment legal in the USA. Readers will learn new dimensions of LGBTQ discrimination, which continue to endure even in 2009. Sometimes, through the journeys of others we can step back, reflect, and reconsider our perspectives. From medical care confrontations, to humiliation, medical benefits to excessive tax demands and fear of violence, you will realize afresh that the fight for equal rights is not over.
