Happy New Year, JMG Community!

Yet another eventful year has come and gone for this here website thingy, which hit the decade mark back in April. In 2014 we saw about 28 million pageviews on about 7000 posts on which you crazy kids left over a million comments. As I mention in this post every year, blogging is like a homework assignment that is never done, but is always due. Nevertheless, you all make it a lot easier with your emails, your story tips, and your encouragement.

Last year I noted that 2013 would be remembered as one of the most momentous years in our movement’s history due to the fall of DOMA, Prop 8, and the advance of marriage equality into several more states. While we saw no such landmark rulings in 2014, the nearly unbroken avalanche of pro-equality decisions that swept the nation will certainly put this year into the history books as well.

I thank you all for your robust opinions and for making the JMG comments
section the most lively in the entire homo-blogosphere. I’m happy to have met so many of you at JMG meetups and look forward to meeting many more of you over the next
year. Tonight, I’ll be raising my glass to each
and every one of our flying monkeys. I’ll be raising it a lot!
