Great News for Gay Rights in the United States: Sam-Sex Marriage Passes In At Least Two U.S. States by Popular Referendum For the First Time




In addition to President Obama being reelected, at least two United State States, Maryland and Maine, have passed legalization of same-sex marriage by popular referendum. This has never happened by vote before in the United States on a state-wide basis.

Results from the State of Washington are not yet available, but should show the same result when counted.

Minnesota seems ready to defeat a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. The results are not in.

This means that same-sex marriage is now legal in the states of:

Connecticut
Iowa
Maine
Maryland
Massachusetts
New Hampshire
New York
Vermont
and the U.S. Federal District, Washington D.C.

Washington (State):  results should be known by the end of the day today.

Sane-sex marriage in California awaits a U.S. Supreme Court Ruling sometime before June 2013.

One more note: Spain's highest court upheld the country's gay marriage law on Tuesday, rejecting an appeal and confirming the legality of same-sex unions.
