Rhode Island Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage. Gay Marriage Legal in 20% of States Now
Governor Lincoln Chafee has signed into law a bill that makes Rhode Island the tenth state in America where gays and lesbians are free to marry their same-sex partners.
“The talented workers who are driving the new economy — young, educated and forward-looking — want to live in a place that reflects their values. They want diversity, not simply out of a sense of justice, but because diversity makes life more fun,” he wrote. “Why would any state turn away the people who are most likely to create the economies of the 21st century?”
So much good news. So many happy people.
Progress is a process, but lately it sure has been moving swiftly.
Congratulations to Rhode Island and you and me and us all.
Gay is good, y’all.
