By a vote of 26-12 the Rhode Island senate passed the gay marriage bill.
The bill needs to return to the house for what amounts to a procedural vote, the governor is expected to sign the bill and gay marriages could start being performed as early as August 1.
Rhode Island will become the 10th state to approve gay marriage. Next up are Delaware and New Jersey.
I'll be at an ACLU Cinco de Mayo event supporting gay marriage.
The dark days of late 2009 seem far away today don't they? Now if only the supreme court has the courage to do the right thing. I'm counting on John Roberts to realize and accept the flow of history.
