This is HUGE!

The U.S. Justice Department will issue a memo today that will usher in the latest milestone for gay rights!

Same-sex marriages will now be recognized in ALL federal legal matters from coast to coast! That means even in states that have bans on gay marriage, couples who live there will still be permitted to do such things as file for bankruptcy, visit each other in prison or be entitled to survivor benefits.

K, well all of those things are kind of downers, but this is still a MAJOR step towards making marriage equality law in all 50 states!

Attorney General Eric Holder announced the new recognition at Saturday’s Human Rights Campaign's gala in New York City. He compared his fight for gay rights to the 1960s civil rights movement and then-Attorney General Robert Kennedy’s quest for equality.

first gay marriage Fort Bragg North Carolina

Awww!!! This is so AH-MAZING!!

Fort Bragg, one of the largest Army bases in the country, located in North Carolina, celebrated a HUGGGE milestone on Saturday — they held their first EVER gay marriage ceremony!

The wedding was between Major Daniel Toven & his (now) husband Johnathan Taylor at the main chapel on the army base!

Congrats to the happy couple!!!

Since gay marriage is still illegal in NC, the pair had officially gotten married in Washington D.C. so the ceremony was more of a blessing, however it was still a MAJOR event to happen on the base!

And the cutest of all cutes is that they actually filmed the long standing tradition of the "arch of swords" which closes military weddings!

Ch-ch-check out the extremely heartwarming video…AFTER THE JUMP!

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:
