It's A Good Day To Be Gay

Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa, Vermont, and Maine are now (as of today) the states in the Union that have legalized same-sex marriage. New Hampshire's legislature just passed a bill that legalizes same-sex marriage; it is as of yet undetermined whether or not Governor John Lynch will sign the bill into law or veto it. He is a democrat, but also a Roman Catholic. However, he has to be feeling enormous pressure right now given the current sweeping victories of same-sex marriage laws in that region. I have confidence that he will sign it into law, effectively making New Hampshire the sixth state to legalize same-sex marriage.

Make no mistake, [we] are winning this battle. We have sat back and taken what mainstream society has deemed us worthy of having for too long; we finally have a new generation of GLBTs and their supporters, and we are not going to be treated like second class citizens anymore. Enough is enough, and the evidence is strong to support the fact that homosexuality is less and less of an issue for everyday people as time moves forward.
