The fight for equal rights in the LGBTQ community is an ongoing one. And although it's easy to get discouraged when you focus on the amount of discrimination that still occurs against members of the LGBTQ community not just in the world, but in America, the strides that have been made in the past two decades are incredible.
But that's because staunch proponents of the LGBTQ cause and their continued fight for equality hasn't slowed down one bit.
Take couple Nick Cardello and Kurt English as a perfect example. The two have been together for 25 years and have been vying for LGBTQ rights ever since they started dating.
This is so necessary. For young gays to see old gays happy, in love, and proud. Thank you for giving me a bit of hope for the future— Quinn (@intelfrog) June 19, 2017
I used to be intensely homophobic, then I grew up and realized love is love. I'm not homosexual, but I will stand up for anyone who is.— Mike Something (@SlaveToBoredom) June 19, 2017

My attitude changed over time. I wish I could say it was sudden. The first big step was understanding that orientation is not a choice.— Mike Something (@SlaveToBoredom) June 19, 2017
Next step was realizing that someone else's orientation was in no way a threat to my own. Then, live and let live. Life's happier that way.— Mike Something (@SlaveToBoredom) June 19, 2017
I'm exhausted! I just did interviews for media in US, Brazil, France & Spain!— Nick Cardello (@CardelloPhoto) June 19, 2017
Is there anything more enviable than a couple hopelessly in love?
