Loving Day is an annual celebration held on June 12, the anniversary of the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision Loving v. Virginia which struck down all anti-miscegenation lawsremaining in sixteen U.S. states
To imagine there was a time where my husband and I couldn’t legally be married in the United States. I wish I could say our country was still on the path of growth. I dunno, maybe it is? It seems like people are starting to listen to each other. And hopefully, listening will lead to better days.
Sometimes I feel like my erotic stories, which often involve mixed-race couples, are my way of trying to push for change. The story I’m working on now, Decontamination, deals with one character’s constant oppression due to the fact he is a human-alien hybrid.
If that sounds familiar to you, it’s because I had the story published before. I’m zhuzhing it up a bit and re-releasing it into the wilds of Amazon. Smashwords is my jam, but I want to see how KDP works. Maybe I could make a dollar off of it! You never know.
But, anyway, I’m grateful to the Lovings for going the distance and making it possible for couples like me and Nate to live happily. I look forward to the day where no one feels like they aren’t able to love those they do!
Other Loving Lovers?
Who else out there is celebrating Loving Day? I’d love to hear some stories. The crazier the better, if you ask me! Comment or send me a message. I’m all ears. Well, I guess eyes, considering…
In case you’re curious, my husband and I met on a Transformers website many moons ago. I was so girly he suspected I was a boy. Nope! All lady all the time. We got married in 2006 and are still going strong today.
