Late Night: They’re Issuing Licenses in Minnesota!
Yes indeedy, folks — We have achieved liftoff here in Minnesota where marriage equality is concerned.
At this time a year ago, not only was marriage equality illegal, we were faced with the prospect of a horrible amendment that would have enshrined inequality in our state’s constitution. What a difference an election — and a return to a Democratic legislature — makes.
For the Twin Cities perspective, Doug Belden has an excellent Pioneer Press article (from whence comes the excellent video at the top of this post) on the first days of marriage equality in the North Star State. Meanwhile, Sally Jo Sorensen at Bluestem Prairie does a roundup of Greater Minnesota reactions and events.
The weddings will commence August 1.
