Gay Marriage legalized in Nevada!!!

“The lessons of our constitutional history are clear: Inclusion strengthens, rather than weakens, our most important institutions,” Judge Stephen R. Reinhardt

Finally! After years and years of discrimination against members of the LGBTQ community the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals has struck down Nevada's constitutional amendment banning marriage equality. This is a monumental win for gay and lesbian couples in Nevada who have been denied the basic rights and privileges of straight couples. Though this was a hard fight, in the end those on the right side of history have prevailed.

Congratulations to everyone who fought so hard to make this a reality in Nevada and beyond. Now come to Las Vegas and get married!!!
