Even bigger news flash: MA legislators vote to defeat same-sex marriage ban!

I can’t help myself. Big week of I can’t help myself.

I just learned this news, via Round is Funny via her post at LesbianFamily.org. She linked to this boston.com piece:

    Legislators vote to defeat same-sex marriage ban.

Of course I darted over to Pam’s House Blend to see more. Here’s her post on it, an open thread that’s sure to have tons of chit-chat on it.

And here’s NGLTF’s press release:

    Task Force hails defeat of proposed state constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in Massachusetts.

Now off you go to rummage wherever you like to go for your news & analysis! After you dance a jig for forward-thinking Massachusetts legislators. Two days after the anniversary of Loving v. Virginia: coincidence? Nothing, people, is a coincidence.

    I am so thrilled I could jump up and down!

    THIS is why I moved to Massachusetts.

    SO happy. SO incredibly happy. 🙂

    This is why I love where I’m from.
    It’s not Berkeley, but Cambridge is a close second in liberalness. It took me a while to understand why my gay friends at school aren’t out to their parents. It’s just never seemed like it would be an issue to me. But then my friends started teasing me that that’s because I have a Cambridge (or Massachusetts) family.
    Personally, I think it’s pretty cool.
