Maine, NH legislators vote for gay marriage

I'm sorry I've been quite delinquent in posting on this blog lately. I'm quite busy preparing for the upcoming screening of 'The Golden Pin' at Toronto's Inside Out LGBT Film & Video Festival, doing press kits, getting word out, writing new synopses for the feature adaptation, that kind of thing.

But I do want to comment on the great news out of Maine and New Hampshire today, where legislators have passed equal marriage bills. Maine's governor says he won't stand in the way of the bill, paving the way for its passage. New Hampshire's governor hasn't said how he'll respond to the bill passed in his state's legislature.

Regardless, Maine now becomes the fifth state in the U.S. to approve equal marriage (with California still pending.) New Hampshire may indeed become the sixth very shortly. The tide has clearly turned in our favour.
