Filed under: Gay Gay Gay

To pick one person as the most influential individual in the fight for gay rights in 2013 seems an impossible feat. History was made countless times this year by so many remarkable men and women.

But gracing the cover of The Advocate this month as their 'Person of the Year' is a man who is not only NOT gay himself, he may not even be an ally to the LGBT community at all!

Pope Francis I assumed the papacy in March and went on to make many changes around the Vatican, including the rhetoric being used on certain issues.

He addressed the issue of gay catholics while on a flight from Brazil to Rome earlier this year, saying:

Video Believed To Be Of The United States' First Same-Sex Marriage Is Revealed!

first gay marriages 072411 04

Even though Minnesota will become the 12th state in the nation to legalize same sex marriage later this week, the state and the nation owe a great deal to a marriage that happened 42 years ago towards furthering the cause of marriage equality.

In 1971, Jack Baker and Michael McConnell were wed in Minneapolis in the first recorded, in more ways than one, same sex marriage ceremony.

The couple caused a controversy back then as the video of their marriage landed on WCCO's broadcast two years after, and later their marriage was declared illegal by Minnesota's Supreme Court. However, even though their married status was nullified, the couple back then predicted that equality would eventually happen.

And as of midnight on Wednesday, they'll be proven right.

In a fitting development, Jack and Michael aren't going to get married this week, because, in their words, they already are.

What an example of the perseverance of love and the progress we've made as a country! Congrats to Minnesota, and to Jack and Michael!
