Marriage equality is a four-state campaign

In the early days of the fight for marriage equality, circa 2004, supporters in states across the country found themselves mostly alone and largely outgunned — scrambling to counter opponents' messages at a time when barely a third of the country was on their side. Less than a decade later, organizers of marriage equality campaigns in Washington and three other states speak of America's growing embrace, of key endorsements they've won and broad coalitions they've formed.

Another Anti-gay-marriage ad misleading, mostly false (in Maine this time)

The anti-gay marriage coalition hasn't fared well so far in Truth Tests, getting two falses earlier this year for claims made on its website using bad information on child-rearing studies and saying tax-exempt status could be at risk if gay marriage passes. This claim is a little more true, but barely.

Numerous health problems disproportionately impact LGBT Missourians

An August 2012 Missouri Foundation for Health report found these poor health outcomes are a result of differences in access to health care, an absence of medical settings that are affirming and free of discrimination, a scarcity of medical staff trained in LGBT health issues and social and economic systems that have not supported and protected minorities.

Election 2012: Equality is Not Created in a Vacuum

At the end of the day, we will not remember the acronyms to the organizations that have shunned our lives and loves for generations. No, we will remember those who have stood beside us and have fought for our denied freedoms as if they were their very own. We will remember the effort, stamina, chutzpah, and resiliency it took to effectively win equality in all four states. And then, when December rolls around, we will start all over again. In the United States of America, no one is equal until all of us are equal.
