We did it!

I feel like dancing and singing that little song from Dora the Explorer.
This morning, the WKU Benefits Committee met to vote on adding domestic partnership benefits (again).
Wow. I’m so happy I hardly know what to say! I, along with many, many other amazing people here at Western Kentucky University have been mobilizing our butts off for the past several weeks. This morning was to be a demonstration to demand equal benefits for our LGBT faculty and staff. Instead, it was a celebration.
There was tears and hugs and singing. It was a beautiful sight, and it was unbelievably gratifying for our work to have paid off. We’re celebrating tonight at a local hangout, Greener Groundz.
I can’t wait to update more thoroughly on what’s been going on. Stay tuned! It’s a tale none will soon forget! I’m resting for a bit, and then I’m off to celebrate!
Have a GOOD Friday!
Edit: As per my blog note, I’ve been so busy, but I will share the details in another post!
