Fridge Wisdom: Same Sex Marriage Passes in Hawaii

December 2, 2013 | By Brent Almond | LESSONS LEARNED, LGBT STUFF

The state that has given us several cool TV shows, a super catchy Christmas song, and the weirdest Disney movie to date, adds yet another dash of fabulous to our country. Today marks the day LGBT American can now get married in Hawaii.

Yet same-sex marriage is becoming such a common occurrence that many media outlets don’t deem it sensational enough to cover. Perhaps they’re holding out for Utah or a Carolina or the Grand Wizard of all conservative states (that would be Texas, y’all) to change its right-wing ways before making marriage equality front page news again.

But Hawaii deserves its day in the sun. The fight for same-sex marriage started in this loveliest of states in the early 1990’s when the Hawaii Supreme Court declared the state’s prohibition to be unconstitutional in Baehr v. Lewin.

So since our last state was the first in this epic journey, they’re getting THREE magnets. And also because I had two different people send me photos of theirs at the exact same moment I decided to break down and buy one myself.

Congratulations (Ho’omaika’i) to all of the new and future couples!

  1. […] Hawaii, I thought it was going to be until another election before I’d get to slap another state […]
