    I’m predicting marriage equality nationwide by the end of 2015. The Supreme Court will have to weigh in soon (no later than summer 2015), and ultimately if they have to reach a decision on the merits, they won’t be able to find 5 justices to oppose equal rights. I wish I could see a similar wave of support for transgender protections, but that looks at the moment to be about 10 years behind =(
