DC City Council approves same-sex marriage

Another step forward for gay rights:

Yesterday, the Washington, DC, City Council voted to legalize same-sex marriage in the district. Mayor Adrian Fenty has indicated that he will sign the bill.

Once it's signed, Congress has 30 days to intervene before the new law takes effect. But, according to CNN, "It is considered unlikely that the Democratic majority on Capitol Hill will block the bill."

Kudos to the DC City Council for voting for marriage equality for all the District's citizens, not just the straight ones.
