Iowa: 3rd in the nation to legalize gay marriage

bt13231747Today, Iowa became the third state in the nation to legalize gay marriage and the first in the nation’s heartland. Hooray!

The state government protection of civil rights in Iowa for all is particularly meaningful for me. I was born in Des Moines, attended public schools in Council Bluffs, and still have family and friends there. Only after I moved to the East Coast did I feel welcome–and safe–enough to come out while an undergrad at Boston University nearly 20 years ago.

I’m in awe and admiration of the good people of Iowa.
