“One of the biggest changes that I have seen is the degree and level of outness from LGBTQ communities, both internally and externally. Despite the overt homophobia and ever-looming threats of violence, it’s been exhilarating to see young folks on MARTA and at public events showing their affection for each other and just being themselves,” she said.

Anneliese & Lauren: ‘A personally sacred experience’
December 11, 2010, was the first day of forever for Anneliese Singh and Lauren Lukkarila.
They met for the first time at a restaurant in Atlanta. As they sat down together, Lukkarila began by saying, “I’m looking for someone who is a feminist out-of-the-box.” Singh high-fived her and exclaimed, “I’m your woman.”
“This was the first of many dinners so long we shut restaurants down, laughed ‘til our bellies hurt, cried sharing our most tender spaces, and kept falling deeper and deeper in love,” they shared on their wedding website.

The time was specifically chose to represent the number of federal benefits and protections gay couples don’t receive because their marriages are not recognized by the federal government.
