This Just In: Gay Marriage Now Legal in Iowa!

Amazing news out of the Heartland this morning: The Iowa Supreme Court has ruled that gay marriage is legal in Iowa, as a result of a legal challenge of Iowa’s same-sex marriage ban. According to the USA Today article on its breaking news blog, “The court upheld a 2007 Polk County District Court judge’s ruling that would allow six gay couples there to wed.” According to the article, that ruling came as a result of a 2005 legal challenge.

This comes on the heels on the Vermont House of Representatives passing its gay marriage bill late yesterday — though not with enough votes to override a veto from the state’s Governor.

We are in the midst of a historic week for LGBT rights. It’s a proud moment for our nation that state Supreme Courts and legislators are standing up for equality.

    It is a honor to stand with our straight allies. I’ve personaly benifited by becoming involved in human rights on a wider scale.
