Hooray for small steps in the right direction!
Governor John W. Hickenlooper signed a law into effect yesterday allowing gay and lesbian couples to enter into civil unions!!!
Permitting civil unions isn't nearly as awesome as legalizing same-sex MARRIAGES, but Rome wasn't built in a day!
The state of Colorado has grown considerably more progressive since 2006, when they passed a state law forbidding gay marriage, but the job is not yet done!!
Our country's equality advocates must not rest until everyone is permitted to marry whomever it is they love.
Colorado becomes the 18th state in the Union with legalized same-sex unions. Hopefully the Supreme Court takes note of this trend when they hear arguments on the Constitutionality of same-sex marriage in a few days.
Equal rights for all! We can do it! Yay!!!
