Anna (Film Grimoire) reblogged this on FILM GRIMOIRE and commented:

Today was a very special day to wake up to, even as someone who doesn't live in the United States. Today was the day when the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that same-sex couples are able to marry the people they love, nation-wide. This is a huge step forward towards equal rights for LGBT* people, even though there is more work to be done. I feel a mixture between extreme happiness today, and extreme sadness and frustration that my own country hasn't been able to make this happen yet. In honour of this special day, I thought I'd reblog a review I wrote last year on a documentary about Harvey Milk, the man who fought for the rights of marginalised groups, particularly gay people, in 1970s San Francisco. A truly excellent documentary about a person who played a key part in the fight for equal rights which resulted in the landmark ruling passed down today.
