Happy Valentine’s Day

Today is Valentine’s Day here in New Zealand. Tomorrow, it will be in North America, too. Today, the people of the US State of Washington got their Valentine’s Day gift when Governor Chris Gregoire signed the state’s new marriage equality law (the video above is the signing ceremony). The rightwing will attempt to put repealing the law on the ballot, as they always do, but the state is also the first US state where citizens voted to retain a civil unions law. Given how the momentum is now clearly in favour of marriage equality, chances that voters would retain the law are good—and that’s if the bigots can even get a repeal measure on the ballot in the first place.

All of that is for another today. Today is all about celebrating love, and the recognition of love. Happy Valentine’s Day.
