Everyone deserves to be able to marry the person they love.

A 'Harry Potter' fan held up a brilliant sign in front of the Supreme Court today.

Today, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Obergefell v. Hodges, the case that might finally legalize gay marriage nationwide.

We likely won't know what they decide until June. But in the meantime, a Harry Potter fan stepped up to the plate with one of the best signs we've seen all day.

While many Supreme Court scholars believe the ruling will likely affect marriage equality in all 50 states, they're largely still divided as to whether it will be broad enough to impact all fictional universes as well.

Still, his point is an important one.

The ability to marry the person you love is not just, like, a cool perk. It's a fundamental right. Even if you're a powerful, benevolent wizard and the person you love happens to be one of the most dangerous dark wizards of all time.

It's been a long time coming. But with any luck, today nine justices will destroy the final horcrux on the road to full marriage equality in the United States. #LoveMustWin.


Davina Agudelo was born in Miami, Florida, but she grew up in Medellín, Colombia.

"I am so grateful for my upbringing in Colombia, surrounded by mountains and mango trees, and for my Colombian family," Agudelo says. "Colombia is the place where I learned what's truly essential in life." It's also where she found her passion for the arts.

While she was growing up, Colombia was going through a violent drug war, and Agudelo turned to literature, theater, singing, and creative writing as a refuge. "Journaling became a sacred practice, where I could leave on the page my dreams & longings as well as my joy and sadness," she says. "During those years, poetry came to me naturally. My grandfather was a poet and though I never met him, maybe there is a little bit of his love for poetry within me."

In 1998, when she left her home and everyone she loved and moved to California, the arts continued to be her solace and comfort. She got her bachelor's degree in theater arts before getting certified in journalism at UCLA. It was there she realized the need to create a media platform that highlighted the positive contributions of LatinX in the US.

"I know the power that storytelling and writing our own stories have and how creative writing can aid us in our own transformation."

In 2012, she started Alegría Magazine and it was a great success. Later, she refurbished a van into a mobile bookstore to celebrate Latin American and LatinX indie authors and poets, while also encouraging children's reading and writing in low-income communities across Southern California.

As people get older, social isolation and loneliness become serious problems. Many find themselves living alone for the first time after the death of a spouse. It's also difficult for older people to maintain friendships when people they've known for years become ill or pass away.

Census Bureau figures say that almost a quarter of men and nearly 46% of women over the age of 75 live alone.

But loneliness doesn't just affect those who reside by themselves. People can feel lonely when there is a discrepancy between their desired and actual relationships. To put it simply, when it comes to having a healthy social life, quality is just as important as quantity.
