In February, I posted about Washington State’s Governor Chris Gregoire signing the Marriage Equality Bill that crossed her desk. Well, unfortunately (but certainly expected), the law has officially gotten a referendum.
As reported by Queerty, “The number of names turned in far exceeds the required 120,577, though there have been some reports of fraud.”
Even with the signature tampering, a recent poll indicates “54% of Washington voters support marriage equality.”
In all, I remain hopeful. Though there are some people in Washington who remain prejudiced against gay rights, the majority supports true equality.
