Hawaii Civil Unions

So many good things going on today! One of the biggest DOMA, and then Hawaii! I am so pleased to announce Hawaii has taken a step towards marriage equality. Governor Neil Abercrombie signed into law a civil unions bill!  This new law is comparable to an everything but marriage law. It affords all of the legal rights and obligaitons of marriage to couples entering into a civil union.

This is great news, It is not marriage but it is a step in that direction! Lets keep in mind this law does not take effect until January 1, 2012. It is likely the bigots will come out in force to repeal this law in any way possible, so we have to be ready. If or someone you know lives in the great state of Hawaii please take the time to thank the leadership!

Its a good day to be gay!
