Sometimes people need to hear a positive story to hear that everything will be alright in the end.

And this one comes out of North Carolina, where a bill recently written into law, restricts the rights of LGBT people and gags those who try to ensrine protections into law.

Meanwhile in the state, this couple who have been together over 49 years, recently celebrated their first wedding anniversary.

Ellen ‘Lennie’ Gerber and Pearl Berlin have campaigned for equality for decades, and fell deeply in love after a brief meeting more than 49 years ago.

Despite marrying in Maine in 2013, their union was not recognised in North Carolina at first, but they fought, and won a lawsuit.

Check out their story in the video below:
