I'm sure most of you have already seen this, but it's news so good it should be shared more than once!

Supreme Court strikes down DOMA and Prop 8

True, the rulings do not give blanket marriage equality to all in the country, but it at least takes the federal government out of the equation of recognizing some legally (state) recognized marriages over others. And the Prop 8 case returns marriage equality to California, one of the largest states in the nation. It's great momentum, and honestly about the best that could be expected with the cases that came before the court. Most legal analysts (especially SCOTUSblog, which is pretty well-regarded and often very accurate in their predictions) thought this would be the rulings.

I'm celebrating still, because this is a GREAT outcome! And hopefully it's another propellent in the equality movement that's spreading across the nation!
