I can still remember how I felt the day after Amendment One passed in North Carolina. I awoke the following day a stranger in my own world, a second class citizen at best. I was exhausted, angry, disappointed and yes, even felt like giving up the fight.
Many good people all across the state stood up and spoke up for equality. They pointed out that it was human rights not gay rights and that all North Carolinians deserve to have the same freedoms and rights. Unfortunately our efforts fell short.
