Wow. Yesterday was quite the day for the LGBTQ community. First, the Vermont legislature overturned a veto of the marriage equality legislation, becoming the 4th state in the country to legalize same sex marriage. That's almost 10% of the states. Woo hoo.
Plus, the District of Columbia Council voted to recognize same sex marriages performed elsewhere. So your Vermont marriage will be recognized when you travel to DC to see the cherry blossoms.
Momentum, dear readers.
k.d. lang was in Pittsburgh.
President Obama invited LGBT families to participate in the annual Easter Egg hunt at the White House. This has been a big issue for several years. Even as recently as 2006, our families were excluded. Families now wear rainbow leis to identify themselves. I understand that the White House set aside tickets for the community. Joe My God has the story.
