BREAKING: Washington State passes Marriage Equality Bill!

On Wednesday night, the Washington State Senate took a historic step towards marriage equality by passing the same-sex marriage bill, 28 to 21.

The vote came after weeks of anticipation when Gov. Chris Gregoire voiced her support for marriage equality in the state after what she called the “end of a personal journey” for her on the issue.

With the Senate approving, the Washington State House will vote within the next week–where it’s certain to pass–and the bill proceed to Gov. Gregoire’s desk, where it’s certain to be signed.

And with that, Washington would become the seventh state or territory in the country to declare same-sex marriages legal.

This is a great day for not only Washington but our country, but I can’t help imagining what our children will think, decades from now, of the fact that we’ve had to work so hard to reach this point.

Next stop? Repeal DOMA, once and for all.
