Miércoles mudo, wordless Wednesday (but not really) - A Chavela Vargas song in honor of DOMA being struck down

Chavela Vargas, for those of you who might not know her, was an amazing singer born in Costa Rica, who became a citizen of Mexico, where she was tremendously loved. She came out as a lesbian, officially at 81, but four or five years before she had revealed in an interview to Spain's El País that: "Nobody taught me to be like this, I was born this way. Since I opened my eyes to the world, I have never slept with a man. Never."
