Federal Judge Strikes Down Ban on Gay Marriage in Mississippi

Gay-Marriage-EqualityToday, federal judge Carlton Reeves sided with two lesbian couples and an LGBT rights organization who had fought for marriage equality in the state of Mississippi. Technically, Mississippi is now a gay-marriage-friendly state! We weren’t LAST — hallelujah!

I always thought Mississippi was able to step up and not be LAST in the fight for LGBT rights such as marriage equality. This proves it is possible for Mississippi to be progressive. And I’m a marriage officiant, so let me know if you’re in the Magnolia State and want to get hitched!

The fight isn’t over, however, as the state has two weeks to file an appeal. Stay tuned for details.
