Let's Not Forget D.C.

I should have posted on this when it happened, but since I posted on Mexico City I did want to acknowledge that in D.C., lawmakers also approved a gay marriage bill by an 11-2 vote.

The bill was signed by Mayor Adrian Fenty on Friday.

Congress can overturn the measure, but only has 30 session days to do it in. With health insurance legislation taking up their time, there is hope that this will not be blocked, though the religious right-wing is doing their best to see that it is.

The Windy City Times has the latest update here.
