We saw last week in Florida and Georgia, bills that could lead to discrimination against the community were about to be reviewed by the Senate after having been approved by the House.
In Virginia, it is a bill both similar because it is an exemption and protection based on religion bill, and at the same time a completely different one as it is to protect all persons and businesses who would oppose equal marriage and homosexuality.
Despite the failure of last year, lawmakers in Illinois and Virginia will again try to deny access to "ex-gay" therapies to minors.
On Friday, the Obama administration announced that it would recognize same-sex marriages in seven states.
Monday, 5 states legalized marriage equality. Today, others have been added to the list!
After long weeks of waiting, yesterday the Supreme Court ultimately refused to hear five cases of equal marriage which resulted to legalize marriage equality in these five states which are Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin!
That's it, five challenges against the prohibitions of marriage equality in the states of Utah, Oklahoma, Virginia, Indiana and Wisconsin were sent to the Supreme Court of the United States.
The U.S. Supreme Court decided to postpone the decision of a Court of Appeal repealing the ban on marriage equality in Virginia.
It was thought that perhaps the Courts of Appeals do not take decision on marriage equality and would send the case to the U.S. Supreme Court but the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals confirmed that the ban on equal marriage in Virginia is unconstitutional!
Unlike Idaho, where same-sex couples who were part of the army are not currently allowed to be buried with their partner in the Veterans Cemetery because marriage equality is not yet legalized, the Ministry of Veterans Affairs announced that former Virginia LGBT fighters would be welcome.
