More on the Name Change

I know a lot of people liked the name It's About Time.  And it was a cool and catchy name and it worked great for almost six years.  I receive a lot of compliments on that name.

But it's not about time anymore.  Gay marriage is here, and here to stay.  

We hope that our new name, 14 Stories, will also ultimately be cool and catchy, once you get the gist of what it means.

14 is the number of individual plaintiffs in the Goodridge case which legalized gay marriage in Massachusetts - incidentally, the six year anniversary of that ruling is November 17

The 14th amendment of the U.S. Constitution was used to dismantle segregation in the 1960s after Brown v the Board of Education; it was used to end the ban on interracial marriage in Loving v Virginia; and it was used to end the ban on sodomy in Lawrence v Texas.  All historic victories for civil rights.

We wanted to acknowledge that past as we move forward.  We are inspired by stories, the stories of the past, the stories of our clients and the stories that are still being written.

A little bit of housekeeping:
Thanks for your support.  So, do you like the new name?

Bernadette
