Equality in the Heartland of America

This week, Iowa became the third state in the union to legalize same sex marriage. The Iowa Supreme Court, in a unanimous decision concluded that denying same sex couples the right to marry was unconstitutional. Iowa joins Massachusetts and Connecticut in giving equal rights under the law. This is the first time a state in Middle America has granted these rights to LGBT people, and I see this day as a milestone in the fight for nationally recognized marriage equality.
