Marriage equality is kind of like the Hanukkah of LGBT+ rights. It’s important because everybody knows what it is so you can use it at the forefront of the movement, and it’s a happy holiday–but if you understand the Jewish religion you also know it’s not the most important holiday. It’s just the most well-known. Now two people of the same gender can get married, but they can still get kicked out of their apartment building for being married, which means there’s a hell of a lot of work to do.
