    So I know I can't be the only one thinking about this. Gay marriage seems to be a clear and present victory at this point. However the question is what will we focus on after we get that?

    I have a few suggestions:

    -Work on getting bans state by state that ban conversion therapy

    -Channel the same creativity passion and energy we used for marriage into ENDA and getting that passed or similar laws like it passed

    -State by state get hate crime laws to cover sexual orientation and gender expression

    -Focus on targeting bullying for LGBT or LGBT perceived children

    -Work on getting laws passed that criminalize disowning a minor for any reason but with special regard to LGBT children in particular

    -Hate speech laws passed and pursued against those who rise up and speak against us in a way that can be considered harmful

    -Some sort of law nullifying the use of the gay or trans panic defense

    What ideas can you guys think of?

    Another question: if marriage equality becomes a reality how will that change the political landscape in America?

    Will the petition for our other civil rights become a much easier fight?
