California Supreme Court Rules In Favor Of Same-Sex Marriage!

Wow...!! A historical Supreme Court decision grants all consenting adults who love each other the right to get married!! This is huge!! I think its gonna be a bigger party than usual at Pride this year..! Congratulations and love to my queer brothers and sisters who have won a privilege/right that I can definitely take for granted. See the Equality California website for details, including copies of the Supreme Court documents.

despite our own personal opinions on the institution of marriage itself-I'm celebrating big time today- its beautiful news for sure...I'm kinda surprised that California is taking the lead and is the second state to take such a stance on same sex marriage..surprised yes- but grateful for sure!

Great that they're removing barriers to what should have been equal or fair a long time ago...

well said Esther, and very much echoing my reaction.

Also, there are definitely radical queer movements like Gay Shame that would prefer to see marriage abolished altogether before seeing queer folks assimilate more into hetero frameworks and culture. In their explanation for their stance they touch on some of the dubious foundations of the history of marriage.
