This is an awesome story, and how sweet that their last name is Loving?!  So happy that you and your Fiance are able to get married because of another couple’s devotion to each other 🙂

Wow, that’s awesome! I never knew how exactly anti-miscegenation laws were overturned – so nice to see the real faces behind the court case. Fiance and I have them to thank as well.

That is awesome! I always wondered how anti-miscegenation laws were overturned. Thank you for posting that article about Mr. and Mrs. Loving and how they went against all odds to be married. I’m looking forward to the documentary about them.

Saw the same article on yahoo and it warmed my heart 🙂 I can’t imagine not being allowed to be with the man I love…it’s unfathomable.

A friend and his wife held up a sign at the March for Equality in 2009, which has been seen all over the internet:

“As an interracial couple, we feel that there are many parallels between the current fight for marriage equality in the GLBT community and that fought by interracial couples of generations past. As the child of an interracial marriage, I watched my parents go through many of these same struggles. So, to show our support, we carried a sign that read “Our Marriage Was Once Illegal, Too!” The response we received from other marchers was overwhelming and unimaginably humbling. We felt that we needed to do more. So, when Marriage Equality came to D.C. in March 2010, we began offering our services to both same-sex and opposite-sex couples.”

Thank you to all the brave people who break barriers and ceilings in the name of justice,  equality and love.
