Finally, after so many losses at state ballot boxes around the country, Minnesota has defeated a discriminatory anti-LGBT constitutional marriage amendment.
GLAAD is thrilled with this election's tremendous wins for LGBT Americans. President Barack Obama won re-election after becoming the first acting president to voice support for marriage equality. Voters in Maine and Maryland affirmed marriage for gay and lesbian couples. This is the first time that voters in any state voted in favor of marriage equality. Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin also became the first out gay U.S. Senator.
It would not be an understatement to say that the future of LGBT equality depends on the outcome of this election. From our nationally elected officials, to the local library board, to the state and municipal referenda, this election is important.
