Canada, France, Sweden, The Netherlands and New Zealand?
Congratulations to Britain's House of Commons for passing a bill on May 22,
2013 legalizing same sex marriage in England and Wales! The legislation passed 366-161.
The measure has now moved to the House of Lords, whose members are expected to hold
their first debate in July. If approved, the law will go into effect in 2015.
Seems to me a long wait to get started!
Minnesota passed their Marriage Equality a week after Delaware!

the Hamptons, Jersey Shore, Rehoboth Beach, Virginia Beach, Cape Charles, Myrtle Beach, the Outer Banks,
Hilton Head, Jacksonville, Palm Beach, Fort Lauderdale, Miami Beach and Key West! Heading West? Hello Seattle,

Progress is being made! In Rhode Island, Minnesota and Delaware, we now have Marriage Equality!

How are you changing to be a better, healthier, more well rounded
person in 2013?
Stop going to wells that are dry to get fed. Choose differently. Face your fears.
Make a choice to learn something new. Meet new friends.
Do something new each week until you are comfortable enough to do something new everyday!
Be kind to a stranger. Help someone. Donate to one of our LGBT Charities.
Give from your HEART. Trust the process. Trust the Universe. Get a spiritual life.
Give hugs! Get an attitude of gratitude.
Think about the words you say...are they kind? loving? true? Speak only positive.
Let go of your internal homophobia. Face your fears. Send love out to all.
BE THE LIGHT IN THE DARKNESS!
In the United States, the Supreme Court will issue a historic ruling this June that could set the course of Marriage Equality nationwide.
We have been waiting, dreaming, about this day for our entire lives.
As we speak, campaigns are gearing up to pass marriage equality in the state legislatures of Hawaii and
Illinois in 2013! Donate some of your time or some of your money to help us help ourselves.
Instead of spending as much out partying...take a percentage of that money and send it to one of our Political Charities.
Don't know which one? HRC is one of the best! Human Rights Campaign found at www.hrc.org!
With the stakes this high, it's time to get to work passing Marriage Equality in as many states as possible in the lead-up to the Court's decision.
We are looking to have 100 Million people with Marriage Equality before the Supreme Court issues their ruling.
Then there will be even more to celebrate!
We are grateful to be here sharing a diverse information website with all of you!
More and more information is being programmed onto our site to serve you better!

That is quite the compliment! We intend to only get better as time goes by!
