The theme is marriage.

Who ever dreamed we’d have three states legalize same-sex marriage all at once and our very first defeat of a DOMA law in a fourth. It’s monumentous day for queer rights. So, blog about it.

If your state just approved it, what was it like to go through having your civil rights voted on? Is marriage even the right place for queers to be focusing their energy?

Blog away and comment with your link by Friday the 16th.

    I never got around to posting about “marriage” but here is my post today regarding “divorce’ and the legal loopholes of same-sex marriage. http://chunkandmommy.wordpress.com/2012/12/04/legal-loop-hole/
