Virginia's same-sex marriage ban ruled unconstitutional; appeal pending

In another step forward for equality and fairness, a federal judge ruled last night that Virginia's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

However, according to the Washington Post, the same judge "stayed her decision pending appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit in Richmond, meaning same-sex marriages will be not be immediately available in the commonwealth."

Stay tuned for updates.
