More than 1,500 New Yorkers gathered today in Manhattan to mourn the death of a 32 year-old gay man, who was shot down on Friday just blocks away from the historic Stonewall Inn in an apparent act of anti-gay bias.
One Step Closer to Marriage in New Hampshire!
This just in--the New Hampshire House has approved a marriage equality bill! The bill's next stop is the Senate.
If passed, New Hampshire would be the third state to allow marriage for gay and lesbian couples. The state currently allows civil unions for same-sex couples, which has provided all the statewide benefits of marriage for the past two years.
Massachusetts and Connecticut currently have marriage equality laws on the books. Though the Vermont Senate approved a marriage equality bill this week, the state's Gov. Jim Douglas has announced he would veto it.
"I am delighted, because it's clear to me that New Hampshire values one class of citizenship and not two."
