As the sunlight gradually descended into the Sound this evening, one editor in the Emerald City sat in front of a large bay window peering out over Pike Place Market wondering what her state of equality might look like in the morning. She had legally married her partner two years prior in Connecticut and while nothing seemed to change when she returned home, everything did – at the same time.

Another editor sat with a baby on her chest and her partner by her side. She decided to write a post-vote speech: one scenario for if the bill passed and another for if it did not. She tucked the paper into her pocket, folding it loosely – hoping for an outcome that would protect her family and their commitment.

Great news from Washington State!
