Will You… After six months aboard the USS New Mexico (SSN 779), MM2 2nd class Jerrel Revels stepped onto Pier 31 at the Naval Submarine Base in Groton Monday afternoon, took to one knee, and proposed to his partner, Dylan Kirchner.
The proposal comes two years after the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” — the U.S. military’s ban on openly gay service members passed in 1993.

My second Vote Against photo, this time with two of my best friends in Raleigh!
I went to their wedding, and one day, they will go to mine.
You can donate to the Vote Against project here, and follow them on tumblr, twitter, and facebook. And of course, VOTE AGAINST ON MAY 8th!

Attention active North Carolinians:

The Vote Against Project began soon after the North Carolina General Assembly passed a state constitutional amendment that would ban legal recognition for all unmarried couples. On May 8, 2012, voters in North Carolina will decide if they want to etch discrimination into our state’s constitution.
Raleigh photographer Curtis Brown, outraged at the harm this would cause many families in his home state, started this project with the help of a team of dedicated volunteers. He aims to create a portrait of North Carolina unity — connected by a common bond to defeat discrimination.
