During a gathering, the activists for LGBT rights of Colorado confirmed that a marriage equality bill would go to the ballot in 2016 if courts don't repeal the ban.

According to The Associated Press, two lawsuits are making their way through state court to repeal the marriage equality ban but the challenge launched by nine gay and lesbian couples about which I wrote the other day is still not confirmed.

Also, yesterday, Governor John Hickenlooper announced that he supports marriage equality.

"If all people are created equal," Hickenlooper said in the statement, "then by extension of law, logic and love, every adult couple should also have the freedom to join in marriage."

Last year, he had already allowed a first advance by signing the law allowing the civil unions for same-sex couples.
