DP Legal In Oregon!

Oregonian gays are thrilled this morning after a federal judge tossed a suit against the state’s domestic partnership laws. Tenacious anti-gay activists plan to file an appeal, but the beneficial legislation went into effect yesterday at 4:20pm. Groovy!

      It may just be me, but when I read your headline, I thought DP meant, um, something else became legal in Oregon.

      Also, a state court in NY has ruled that the state must honor gay marriages performed elsewhere. It is an interesting way to pry the door open. Could the case be made that not honoring gay marriages is discrimination against the foreign-born?

      My “man” and I are so friggin’ happy! Now he can be on my insurance, when he didn’t have any. Scary. He has a twisted sister who would take everything from me if something should happen to him. Now, I at least feel that we can protect each other.
      I’m proud of my beautiful state.
      We’re going to finally be a “legal” couple after 22 years!
      However, some “jesus” group in…ARIZONA is appealing it.
      Stay there! Don’t come to Oregon!

      We’ve got a ton of coverage on this case as well as a great video from right after the ruling. What an amazing day to be an Oregonian!

      wow a republican bush appointed activist judge who really didn’t want to rule the way he did but kind of had to follow the law.
