Rainbow Snippets June 25,26 PRIDE Love Wins

Posted in Blog, Rainbow Snippets

Hello All! I’m back with Rainbow Snippets, our awesome FB group of authors and bloggers who post snippets from LGBTQ works every weekend. Catch up with all the snippets here: Rainbow Snippets.

A lot has happened since my last snippet, including the horrific massacre at the Pulse nightclub in Orlando. I blogged about that and my experience last weekend at Portland Pride over at Prism Book Alliance: Pride.

Today is the one-year anniversary of the Supreme Court ruling that legalized same-sex marriage. I remember vividly that joy of that day. I started writing the second novella in the Wild and Precious series, There You Are, soon after and I included this victory in the story. My snippet today is from the celebration dinner that night. Cody and Phineas are the MCs and Sandy is Phineas’s 18-year old nephew.

“To female Supreme Court justices everywhere!” Phineas raised his glass of champagne. “All three of ’em!”

“Yeah!” Sandy nodded vigorously. “Plus Kennedy and that other guy! Also, here’s to me getting to drink something alcoholic!”

Cody returned Phineas’s happy smile and raised his glass along with them. “Hear, hear! Love wins.” He gazed at Phinney across from him in the candlelight, took in Sandy’s grinning face, and was seized with that fear-tinged joy he’d come to recognize as love.

Here’s to love.
