Oh yeah! We're gettin' closer!!

SCOTUS (the Supreme Court of the United States) confirmed through its Twitter account that arguments in their gay marriage cases will take place in March 2013.

And decisions will be made "around June 27!"

These cases include the decision made by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to strike down California's Prop 8 — which banned golden state same-sex marriages back in 2008.

SCOTUS will also review the challenge made to the Defense of Marriage Act, and that could mean progress for the entire country!!

You know we've got our equality-lovin' fingers crossed!

Kirk Cameron Belittles Gay Families In Dying Homophobia Campaign

Look, we all know the anti-gay marriage clock is ticking.

We know equality (hey, what a great American concept) will soon prevail over the shrinking cloud of homophobia that rains on its followers.

Regardless, NOM (or National Organization for Marriage) hired Kirk Cameron to preach his infamous views on marriage — that unless it's a straight union, it's destined for doom! (above)

You know we've expressed our views on Kirk's contradictory statements before, the ones that aid in hindering American equality anyways.

But we thought you might like to know what GLAAD thinks about all of this.

We're almost there!!

In February, the Ninth Circuit ruled that Californian Prop 8 was unconstitutional. So supporters of the gay-marriage-banning bill sought to have a larger panel of judges rehear their arguments.

But it's official. They're just not havin' it. The Ninth Circuit has declined to rehear arguments over the statewide ban on gay marriage.

That being said, the case is gearing up for it's trip to the Supreme Court, where the final gavel could bang equality once and for all!!!

If the Court decides the case is worth hearing, a decision will come by

It's a very important day in North Carolina!

When voters cast their ballot for the primaries, they'll also be voting yay or nay on a gay marriage ban!

If Amendment 1 passes, in their own words, "marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized."

So not only will consenting, gay adults lose any hope to marry in the state, they won't even be able to enjoy a civil union.

But the LGBT community won't be the only one suffering is this passes. Opponents of the

Zach Wahls Talks Kim Kardashian & Marriage Equality On David Letterman!

One of our heroes!!!

You remember the man who gave that a-mazing speech about gay parents in front of the Iowa House of Representatives?? Zach Wahls??

Well he's still pushing forward for marriage equality, and we are SOOO thankful for people like him!!!

And since one the arguments against same-sex marriage is "the sanctity" of the institution, he jokes with David Letterman:

Gays messing up the sanctity of marriage? I think Kim Kardashian's doing an alright job of that herself.

LOL!!! Aww… Kimmy….

But he does make a point!! The "sanctity" case isn't so valid if we're gonna let divorces happen left and right, now is it??

Press PLAY to watch the FULL interview on The Late Show (above)!!!

Kirk Cameron Responds To The Backlash Over His Outdated Homophobia!

kirk cameron gay marriage homophobia

Oh here we go!!

Kirk Cameron has released a statement in response to the backlash given over the homophobic views he expressed to Piers Morgan.

Throwing it back on everyone, because ya know, he definitely shouldn't be held accountable when he says homosexuality destroys society, Kirk says those who judge him are just as bad as he is for judging homosexuality.

Welp! He's right when he says everyone is judging him too (for being narrow-minded). But here's the thing - the judgement thrown back on him won't hinder his civil rights. It's the judgement he and others spew that keeps gay Americans from enjoying certain freedoms.

His statement reads:
