Arizona Makes Gay History

Arizona is the first state to reject a constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage. In the past few years, 26 states have passed amendments to their constitutions to outlaw same-sex marriage.

On Tuesday fair-minded voters in Arizona rejected the discriminatory amendment 51% - 49%. Voters in Virginia, Wisconsin, South Carolina, South Dakota, Idaho, Tennessee and Colorado, however approved amending their constitutions to ban same-sex marriage.

I am proud to say that I lived in Arizona for a couple years. Although the county that I lived in voted for the ban on gay marriage.
This is a huge win for the LGBT community nation-wide.
