"I feel affirmed as a [heterosexually] married man by what's happened here in San Francisco."
Further reason that San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is amazing.
And don't miss this at the end of the article:
"Meanwhile, New Mexico's Sandoval County said it will issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because it had no legal grounds to refuse them.
New Mexico law defines marriage as a civil contract between contracting parties and does not mention gender.
"This office won't say no until shown it's not permissible," said Victoria Dunlap, county clerk of Sandoval County, which is home to 90,000 people just north of Albuquerque.
It's happening, folks. It's happening, and we're here for it. Don't forget to sign the Million for Marriage petition, either - I'm not necessarily a big fan of the HRC, but this is something worth doing.
