Mahalo Hawaii

same sex marriageAlthough Hawaiian governor, Neil Abercrombie, signed a bill legalizing gay marriage on November 13th, today is the first day same sex marriages can legally be performed in The Aloha State.

Mahalo Hawaii

Marriage equality was never a question once Massachusetts drew a line in the sand legalizing it in 2004 (more about that here.) The only question was how long would we have to wait? With the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell in 2011,  the US Supreme Court declaring DOMA unconstitutional in 2013 and  public opinion now firmly on our side one can more confidently envision a wave of state legislatures and governors recognizing same sex marriage.

  1. Aloha, Cowboy!!!! For anyone who wants to get a flavor of gay Hawaii, I recommend reading the mystery novels of Neil Plakcy! Shameless plug, I know, but I hope that you don’t mind, BosGuy! ;)
