    My partner became a citizen last year.

    It was a very moving moment... one I still remember with pride and excitement as he stood, surrounded by our neighbors and friends, straight and gay, and became a US citizen.

    It is an amazing event and one that is personal to us too...  we no longer live in fear that we'll have to leave the US to live our lives.

    This fight, including all of the LGBT community's fight for immigration equality is personal. And it finally feels like it is moving in the right direction regardless of all of the hate and fear being stoked by the GOP.

    Thanks for sharing your memory. It makes me even prouder of my partner... if that was possible.
