Judge Vaughn Walker ruled today:
“Because Proposition 8 is unconstitutional under both the Due Process and Equal Protection Clauses, the court orders entry of judgment permanently enjoining its enforcement; prohibiting the official defendants from applying or enforcing Proposition 8 and directing the official defendants that all persons under their control or supervision shall not apply or enforce Proposition 8.”
This is awesome. I love how the two billionaire playboys have such different reactions. Bats is like “hell no,” while Tony Stark has his heels up over his head in two seconds flat. Hilarious!

New York Senate Kills Gay Marriage Bill 38-24. Will Patterson force the issue again? Probably not if the votes aren’t there.
The state of Washington’s domestic partner law (everything but marriage) went into effect this week. This is big news and gives tons of rights to gay and lesbian couples, much like California’s domestic partnership law.
Washington, D.C. approves same-sex marriage bill in first of two necessary procedural votes. Congress is unlikely to block the bill going into effect. Again, fingers crossed.
Ireland to consider Civil Partnership bill. There will be some resistance, but it has a fighting chance.
And finally, a news item that’s not related to gay marriage but is still pretty awesome: John Perez, an openly gay politician, might become the first gay Speaker of the California Assembly. We wish him luck.
