It’s hard to believe, but it was around 1992 before a majority of Americans supported interracial marriage. That’s crazy!

Also crazy: kids who were born in 1992 turned 21 in 2013, which means they’re just hitting the world of adult dating. Raised in a climate of tolerance and approval, interracial coupling is simply no big deal to these youngsters.

And on June 12, we’re coming up on the anniversary of Loving v. Virginia, the Supreme Court case that ended state bans on miscegenation.

So, with interracial couples no big deal and a civil rights milestone nearing the half-century mark and a year of milestones of our own, is marriage and equality on everyone’s mind at this year’s Pride?

Well, no, not really. We found some interracial couples at LA Pride 2013 in West Hollywood, and asked them how they’re feeling at this crossroads of history. Mostly, they were happy just to have found each other and to be enjoying a sunny day in the park. The legal ramifications can wait for another time.
