Gay Marriage passes in New York- Is Las Vegas next?

See also

It's been a few days since the bill passed in New York to allow gay marriage and over the past year it has passed in several other places as well including Washington D.C. We are definitely showing progress as American citizens when bills such as these pass. As we know,last year was Nevada's year when we took a huge step in the right direction in passing the Domestic Partnership Law. However, many feel that law was not good enough and Las Vegas being the #2 Gay Destination as reported by http://www.funmaps.com/Feature/Vegas/ we know we have the ability to hold another title. When Las Vegas was newly established is was know well as the Divorce capital (.http://www.vegastripping.com/sinnersguide/sin.php?sid=8) Years later it became the marriage capital, and so why not now for our gay rights capital! We have gay clubs, gay resorts, gay wedding chapels, etc

So I encourage all who believe in this strongly to call their Senators, sigh petitions, stay up to date with the HRC @ www.hrc.org This organization has been behind all the recent efforts and continues to seek equality for all. Become a member with the HRC for more benefits or simply subscribe to their updates. There are times in our lives when we must stand united for what we believe in as a people, and fight for it peacefully; Failing is not an option in the area of human rights or civil rights...Take a stand today!
