California Says “I Do” To Same Sex Marriage

They’re here, they’re queer, and even the Govenator won’t stop them! In a landmark ruling for gay rights, the California Supreme Court has just overturned the Defense of Marriage Act, which prevented homosexuals from being able to legally marry their partners. Back in 2004, following Massachusetts’ lead, San Francisco allowed gays to wed and gave the first license to a couple of 80-year old women who had been together for 50 years. (Aww, old people in love are so cute!) However, after a month of being barraged by happy same sex pairs, the court stopped letting gays make it legal when voters seemed against it. So, the City of San Francisco along with a dozen gay activist groups sued the State of California and today, finally, they successfully sealed the deal to allow same sex marriage! Hooray! [MSNBC]
