Today is an historic day for the nations, it's capital, and the LGBT community.
Mayor Adrian Fenty [aka Hottie McHot, or Call Me!] is expected to sign a bill that will grant marriage equality in the District of Columbia. And, in a bit of irony, and don't we love irony, Fenty will sign the legislation at the All Souls Unitarian Church in Northwest. This bill not only allows same-sex marriage in Washington DC, but it requires DC to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions. The ceremony is scheduled to begin at 10:45 AM, this morning, and gay couples could start marrying in Washington DC as early as March!
Still, as always, there are opponents to the bill, and Congress, which has final say over Washington's laws, has thirty days to reject the bill if they so choose. But Democratic Congressional leaders have suggested they are reluctant to do so.
So, congratulations DC City Council, for seeing through all the rhetoric and realizing that marriage equality is the future of this country. You've taken a bold step, and make all the haters and naysayers soon understand that this is how it will be in America.
