Wow. All this good homo news in one day? I don't think I can handle it.

In all seriousness, thanks. As a middle aged homo, watching state after state enact DOMA laws or amend their constitutions over the last few years has been really depressing. The general state of gay rights has largely seemed to be slipping backwards to me. It is a relief to get good news every now and then.

Thank you for some good news regarding us. We have received so little in the last couple of years.

Some of us straights are absolutely thrilled to read such an abundant amount of good news as well. Now we need to turn our efforts to obtaining nationally recognized domestic partnerships.
