Iowa Supreme Court strikes down ban on same-sex marriages

Great news from Iowa this morning, as the State Supreme Court UNANIMOUSLY struck down the state's ban on same-sex marriages. You can read the court decision here.

More on the Iowa decision from the Des Moines Register, The New York Times and, of course, bloggers, bloggers and more bloggers.

Here in New York City, Civil Rights Front is planning a rally at Union Square this evening. Here are the details (from organizer Heath Tucker):

"As many of you are already aware, we were victorious in Iowa today. In response, we are having a celebratory rally on the south side of Union Square at 6:30pm tonight. The overall tone of the evening will be a celebration, but we must make everyone who attends aware of the steps we must take in our OWN state to achieve such a victory."

What: Celebrate Victory in Iowa
Where: Union Square (south side)
When: 6:30-7:30pm

And speaking of steps that YOU can take to make marriage equality happen here in New York State, the best way that you can have an impact in New York is to come to Equality & Justice Day in Albany on April 28. Find out more here.
