These are my friends Kim, Mike, and Kristi (left to right). I am convinced that there are no better allies anywhere. They worked tirelessly to defeat the proposed anti-marriage amendment in Minnesota this election season, hosting a house party and knocking on many, many doors. I do not even live in Minnesota, but am so grateful for these three people. Mike and Kristi had a wedding in 2008, but made the decision to not legally get married in a show of solidarity with LGBT folks. I was blown away by the selflessness of their choice at the time and now I am proud to report that they have decided that, with the momentum that same-sex marriage seems to be collecting, they will be making their marriage legal soon. Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do. I love you so much. <3 —Ames
