One year ago, celebrations around the Supreme Court ruling for marriage equality in all US states were as diverse as the LGBT community.
We all saw the street parties, the people celebrating a historic win outside the court buildings and the White House lit up like a rainbow.
Balance Gift Goods has released a heartwarming new video, advertising their rainbow-colored Love is Love bracelet designed to commemorate the court’s historic decision.
It follows a young gay couple on their long road to full marriage equality – and it’s sure to bring a little tear (of the happy kind, mind you) to your eyes.
From carefree childhood days to a first, tentative meeting in the face of bullies, to the day the couple moves in with one another, it’s just the right amount of sweet to get us emotionally invested.
‘This unique bracelet represents a historic moment that we all were witness to on 26 June 2015, and the undying notion that love is love.
As we are at the eve of the first anniversary of the Supreme Court’s affirmative decision in the Obergefell case, these bracelets remind us of not only the joy and elation of that day, but of all of the sacrifice that it took to get us to this point today,’ said Susan McDermott, speaking for Balance Gift Goods.
‘We are honored to support Orlando as the beneficiary of a portion of the proceeds of this bracelet.’
Five dollars from every bracelet sold will go to the GoFundMe.com established by Equality Florida to support the victims’ families and the LGBT community in Orlando.
The bracelet, formed in the rainbow colors that have intrinsically come to represent the LGBT community, is united by a clasp engraved with the date of the historic ruling and marked with the phrase that we all hold with high value: “Love is Love”. You may purchase the bracelets on Balance’s website.
