we can always count on california

Same sex couples can now legally marry in California! A domestic partnership option for gay couples was already in place, but the California Supreme Court today struck down state laws that limited marriage to a union between a man and a woman.

That brings the number of states to have legalized gay marriage to a grand total of two (California and Massachusetts), but with the current trend of constitutional amendments being brought in to “defend” the institution of marriage, it’s nice to hear some good news on the queer civil rights front across the border.

If you’re a legal geek like me, or if you’re interested in seeing how judges reach their conclusions, you can read the full text of the court’s decision here.
