I’m pretty blown away by this – am astonished and gleeful and deeply moved.

Never did I imagine that I could be watching the Grammys on network television and see 33 couples, many of them same-sex couples, get married live on the air as a gay anthem is being performed.

That anthem is, of course, the stupendous “Same Love” by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis and the awesome Mary Lambert as featured vocalist.

I’m just verklempt folks. The words of the song – just right on.

Thank you all involved for doing this – even Queen Latifah who could be seen as an awkward choice to be making a statement for same-sex equality.
