Gay marriage becomes law in Vermont

I was overcome with joy to hear that the state of Vermont just became the first state in the USA to vote in favour of gay marriage.  I went on to Democracy Now (www.democracynow.org) and listened to Amy Goodman tell us about this momentous event.  Go to her website to hear her speaking to Beth Robinson, chair of the Vermont Freedom to Marry Task Force, to Rep. Bill Lippert, chair of Vermont House Judiciary Committee, and longtime gay rights activist and to 12 year old Evann Orleck-Jetter, daughter of a lesbian couple, who testified at the public hearings on gay marriage last month before Vermont’s Joint Senate and House Judiciary Committees.
