"New Mexico's guarantee of equal protection to its citizens demands that same-sex couples be permitted to enjoy the benefits of marriage in the same way and to the same extent as other New Mexico citizens."—New Mexico Attorney General Gary King
Apparently the marriage equality initiative is starting to push off here in good ol' New Mexico, and I couldn't be happier. Two men applied for a marriage license in Santa Fe, knowing they wouldn't get it, to help jumpstart the issue locally. Those are some brave individuals, and I'm so glad they stepped forward and got the state's attention. You guys rock!
I know it's not a win yet or anything, but I say this calls for a celebration! Go go go New Mexico!
