More good news on the marriage equality front! Today, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals found Proposition 8 to be unconstitutional. California voters passed the measure in 2008, explicitly defining marriage to be between one man and one woman. In the four-month period before the law took effect, an estimated 18,000 same-sex couples wed in California. Today the court ruled that “Proposition 8 served no purpose, and had no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California.” This is an important victory, and experts think the case will make its way to the U.S. Supreme Court within the next year. Between Washington state’s recent marriage equality bill and 116 U.S. mayors signing a Freedom To Marry pledge, it feels like the tide is finally turning in the fight for equal rights. It’s about time. Read the full text of the court’s decision here. [Los Angeles Times]

When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, “All LOVE is equal,” a lot of people mocked me — they said, “What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!” And I said, “Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.” … I believe every American should be allowed the same rights and civil liberties. Without legalized same-sex marriage, most of the time you cannot share the same health benefits, you are not considered next of kin and you are not granted the same securities as a heterosexual couple. How is this different than having someone sit in the back of the bus because of their skin color?

I’ve always liked Miley Cyrus (although The Frisky as a whole jokes about her dopier moments) but I’m ready to trade up that “like” to “love.” Miley’s got a short article in the March issue of Glamour on why she supports gay marriage. She’s even recruited Billy Ray Cyrus to the cause. “My dad, who is a real man’s man, lives on the farm and is as Southern and straight as they come,” she writes. “He loves my gay friends and even supports same-sex marriage. If my father can do it, anyone can.” Here, here! [Glamour]

It’s been a great week for gay rights in the Pacific Northwest, with the recent news that the Washington state legislature has enough votes to legalize gay marriage, and governor Chris Gregoire indicating she would sign the bill into law. And there’s more good news: major companies like Microsoft (which had previously held a “neutral” position on gay marriage) and Nike have signed a letter to the governor indicating their support for the marriage equality measures, and yesterday, Starbucks sent out a letter to their nearly 150,000 employees pledging their full support to marriage equality. Read the heartwarming Starbucks text in full after the jump. I’m off to have a celebratory caramel macchiato. [Buzzfeed] Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: Politician Trying To Ban Gay Marriage Caught Committing Adultery

  • Anti-gay Minnesota Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch has stepped down amongst allegations of an affair with a Senate staffer. Hmm, this throws a wrench in plans she and other GOPers in the state had to ban gay marriage, doesn’t it? An “apology” issued by the state’s gay community for breaking up Amy Koch’s traditional marriage is absolutely priceless (emphasis mine): Keep reading »
