With Mayor Adrian Fenty’s Signature, Gay Marriage Is Officially Legal In Washington D.C. (Almost!)



Congress still has 30 days to review it, but D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty just signed into law marriage equality in the nation’s capital. “The ceremony at All Souls Unitarian Church — one of many in the city that supported the legislation — opened with comments by Fenty, Council chairman Vincent Gray, and Council members Phil Mendelson, David Catania and Jim Graham. In his opening remarks, Fenty recalled that when his own parents were married, many states would have refused to recognize their bonds. Fenty’s father is black, while his mother is white. ‘Today an era of struggle ends for thousands of D.C. residents,’ he said. ‘Our city is taking a leap forward.'”
