Marriage In Connecticut

More

Some perspective. Massachusetts still has full marriage rights; so does Connecticut. New York will recognize Massachusetts marriage. Obama has pledged full federal civil unions (yes, I know, I'll believe that when I see it and it sure won't happen any time soon). But yesterday, Connecticut also voted on a constitutional convention to revoke marriage rights. It lost by a big margin. I also think a lot of people will see what happened in California and it will change their minds. Now: gay groups need to do much more work engaging African-Americans. And one of the critical steps will be encouraging more black gay men and women to come out.
