Same Sex Marriage Vermont SUCCESS
I am so happy after so much opposition and harassment from those against S.115. It has now come! Today at about 10:30PM the bill became law after overriding the Governor's veto. Vermont is the FIRST state to legalize same sex marriage VIA legislation! This gives hope for California, this gives hope for all the other states fighting for marriage equality.
This also gives us all hope to strike down DOMA, the fight has just begone but we are gaining momentum at such a fast rate. Thank you Iowa, thank you Sweden, you may have helped us to get our marriage in Vermont! This is such a historic moment for our world, for LGBT citizens everywhere!
I am also pleased to announce that Vermont is the FIRST state to successfully pass same sex marriage legislation and override a governors veto. It is amazing how far we have come in 9 years, even though I was too young to understand politics to this degree... I am so happy and this gives me so much hope and happiness for the future of the United States!
THANKS TO THE HOUSE OF REPS, THE SENATE, AND MOST OF ALL VTFREETOMARRY YOU MADE IT POSSIBLE, I LOVE YOU ALL ^.^
Now if you'd excuse me, I'm going out to celebrate!
Fight the Hate!
Give the Love!
