While a meaningful step, marriage equality is hardly the end of the LGBT rights movement. In fact, same-sex marriage has been derided by some because of the disproportionate energy and resources devoted to it over other equally, if not more, pressing LGBT issues.

‘There is still widespread inequality within the LGBT community based on race, class, gender, sexuality, age, ability, nationality — you name it,’ Harvard historian Timothy Patrick McCarthy told Mic.

Indeed, today poor and non-white LGBT individuals continue to struggle against the interconnected forces of queer, trans and racial antagonism, as well as economic disenfranchisement. Any LGBT movement of the future must respond to the needs of all within the community if is to be effective.

Institutionalized rejection of difference is an absolute necessity in a profit economy which needs outsiders as surplus people. As members of such an economy, we have all been programmed to respond to the human differences among us with fear and loathing and to handle that difference in one of three ways: ignore it, and if that is not possible, copy it if we think it is dominant, or destroy it if we think it is subordinate. But we have no patterns for relating across our human differences as equals. As a result, those differences have been misnamed and misused in the service of separation and confusion.

One thing i love about my boyfriend

So i recently got a job where i (an African American woman) will technically be getting paid more than my bf(a white male) for a similar job. When i was telling him about this we got on the discussion on feminism and equal rights and he said “Thats what i dont understand. I will never be threatened or offended by a woman who makes more. If she works harder than me and earned it, she deserves to get paid higher. Even if you made 20k more than me annually. You go to school and you’re getting a degree. You earned that.”
