My hon and I just finished re-watching Leverage. If you’ve never seen the show, it’s a pretty good one. Not always 100% plausible, but I love the character dynamics, and it has one of my favorite series endings. I can just imagine the three of them (Parker, Hardison, and Eliot) out there working and living together. Of course, in my mind they are all in a relationship. The three of them had such fantastic chemistry. I loved when things got emotional between Hardison and Eliot.
Here’s a great moment with Nate. It’s from an episode where they’re trying to stop a man who is attempting to steal a heart from a 15 year old kid who’s next in line on the transplant list. The kid can’t wait for another heart. He’ll die if he doesn’t get this one.
Gotta love a man who stands up for those who can’t stand up for themselves.

Following the wonderful Supreme Court decision allowing same-sex marriage across the United States, my partner and I were legally married in our home state. It was a long-awaited, lovely day, and I want to take a moment to say THANK YOU to all of you out there who get what it truly means. Your support and understanding mean more than I can say.
Because it’s not just about being able to state that “We’re married.” It’s about survivor benefits, next-of-kin status, legal status to your spouse’s children, access to medical coverage and disability, ability to take family leave to care for an ill spouse, inheriting your spouse’s estate, and the list goes on and on and on. Over 1100 rights and privileges granted to married couples in the US.
No more living in fear because you are merely roommates with the love of your life. Now that person is legally “your person.” No one can deny you access and information. You can be with your sick partner (or even claim their body if they’ve passed). You can make decisions as their spouse. You can more easily share finances and health coverage. You can be a family in the eyes of the government.
Thank you to all of the supporters of LGBT rights, to the Supreme Court justices who voted in our favor, and to Jim Obergefell, my fellow Ohioan. You fought for all of us and changed our lives. Thank you!
