So, I totally forgot to update this earlier, but I wanted to commemorate a recent anniversary!
On September 16, 2004, my province of Manitoba became the 5th province to legalize same-sex marriage, following earlier rulings made by Ontario, British Columbia, Quebec, and the Yukon Territory. Within less than a year, the remaining 6 provinces and 2 territories had made their own rulings, and on July 20, 2005, same-sex marriage was legal throughout Canada.
So here's to 10 years of marriage equality in Manitoba, and congrats to everyone who benefited from it! (i.e. Everyone) And remember kids, no matter if you're gay, straight, bisexual, transgendered, intersex, asexual, pansexual, two-spirited, queer, or something that hasn't been categorized yet, we all deserve the same rights and freedoms.
