But it’s not illegal.
Marriage is just not recognized as something lawfully binding.
No one is being arrested for being homosexual and loving another. lol

If you’re a LGBT citizen in  Sudan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Mauritania, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Qatar, UAE or parts of Nigeria, being gay is punishable by death.

So yeah, no one is arrested for having a different sexual orientation.
They’re killed for it.

Also, until 2003 being LGBTQ WAS illegal in 13 states.

Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558 (2003) is a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court. The Court struck down the sodomy law in Texas in a 6-3 decision and, by extension, invalidated sodomy laws in 13 other states, making same-sex sexual activity legal in every U.S. state and territory.

They used to kick down gay people’s doors and arrested them while they were in bed.

They used to raid gay bars to find crossdressers, GNC and trans people to arrest (that’s how Stonewall happened).

They used to make up fake charges against gay people to allow them to still arrest them for being LGBTQ.

It being legal to be gay in the US is a very new thing.

Today is one of those days when I realize that people below the age of 30 know a very different world than I do.

It constantly blows my mind tbh, especially when it’s people slightly younger than me because the years you really start becoming aware of the world vary enough that even someone 21-23 has a radically different understanding of how much things have changed in just the last few years.

Now’s a good time to mention Chechnya.
