““To be gay in the South right now is to be an exotic animal and it’s also a sin.” Raymie Wolfe, right, with Matthew Griffin in White Pine, #Tennessee. As a kid, Raymie didn’t have the words to describe himself. Gayness, he said, was something that wasn’t talked about. But earlier this summer, after the Supreme Court ruled in favor of same-sex marriage, he and Matthew were married. “Matty was in the kitchen and he said ‘I want to get married today,’” Raymie recalled. “And I was like ‘Yes, yes, I want this historic day, I want this victory to be our wedding anniversary.’” If you live in the South, how, if at all, has the Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of #samesexmarriage affected you, your family or your community?
