Congratulations to Minnesota for passing same-sex marriage in the House and Senate this week. Governor Dayton will sign the law later, and make same-sex marriages legal starting August 1st. Marriage equality for everybody!
so proud of my homeland right now <3
So happy! Now my cousin’s marriage to his wonderful husband can be officially recognized by the state he was born and raised in! Good on you Minnesota!

I need that car…
Oh. My. God…I found you. After seeing you in that parking garage a few weeks back I found you again. My search is over. Now I just need to figure out who you are so we can be friends forever.
Tomorrow we’ll become the 12th state in the US to legalize gay marriage.

If grandmothers around the world had a rallying cry, it would probably sound something like “You need to eat!”
Photographer Gabriele Galimberti’s grandmother said something similar to him before one of his many globetrotting work trips. To ensure he had at least one good meal, she prepared for him a dish of ravioli before he departed on one of his adventures.
“In that occasion I said to my grandma ‘You know, Grandma, there are many other grandmas around the world and most of them are really good cooks,” Galimberti wrote via email. “I’m going to meet them and ask them to cook for me so I can show you that you don’t have to be worried for me and the food that I will eat!’ This is the way my project was born!”
The project, “Delicatessen With Love”, took Galimberti to 58 countries where he photographed grandmothers with both the ingredients and finished signature dishes.
He acted as photographer and stylist during each shoot with the grandmothers, taking a portrait of both the women and the food they made for him.

BREAKING: Minnesota House Approves Marriage Equality 75-59
The Minnesota House of Representatives approved a bill legalizing marriage equality Wednesday afternoon by a vote of 75-59, earning “aye” votes from two Republicans. The bill will likely be heard by the full state Senate next week.
The legislation, House File 1054, provides for marriage between any two adults, but would not require religious institutions or individuals to perform or recognize same-sex marriages.
“In Minnesota, we don’t turn our backs on family,” said out lesbian Rep. and bill sponsor Karen Clark during the three-hour debate, during which supporters and opponents could be heard chanting outside the closed chamber doors.
Governor Mark Dayton has promised to sign the bill if it reaches his desk
Proud to be a Minnesotan today! (Well every day, but today especially.)
