DOMA: One Year Later, What's Changed? MTV'S Gil Kaufman Interviews MEUSA Executive Director Brian Silva

2014-06-26_Brian_Silva_DOMA-_1_year_later_MTV_interview_0.png“It’s been a really successful and positive path since that decision [Windsor v. United States],” said Brian Silva, executive director of Marriage Equality USA. “We’ve seen a continued rise in polls in terms of people supporting marriage, across all demos: age, race, gender, religion, political affiliation. There’s also more and more Republican support for the issue and, in a similar but important difference, even folks who are not necessarily at the point where they’re saying yes to marriage equality, their opposition to marriage equality and acceptance of the fact that it’s coming has increased.”

    The support for marriage has gained momentum over the years. This is a positive trend to record. The future generation will surely see the progress we are making today and be encouraged that they can also do it.

    Let’s consider positive changes for the last year. People lost faith in everything they believed they could do. They thought it is nearly impossible to overcome difficulties with marriage with respect to age, race, gender, religion, as well as other difficulties like assignments on their way, but proved to be helpful and changed the lives of many students who spent most of their time on studies, now they can socialize more.
