From the Closet


In support of National LGBT Pride Month, and the astounding Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage, the editors of Ash & Bones are pleased to deliver this diversified issue. We hope you enjoy tripping back through love and history when you read “Five-Twenty-Two Harrison,” tiptoeing on eggshells and shedding hate during “Tulips and Eggshells” and “No More Hate,” laying roses while reading “The Confession,” being beautiful, graceful “Marilyn,” and engaging in third party review of LGBT rights in Springfield, Ohio, when you read “Dear Springfield, Ohio” and the corresponding essay, “Picking up the Story in 2010: Coming Out LGBT in Springfield.”

A sincere congratulations to all those leaders and supporters of the same-sex marriage initiative and to those who are now finally able to love the ones they love and show it under the terms of legal marriage.
