A Gay Election Day: Obama, Gay Marriage, and Tammy Baldwin win

It was a great Election Day for American gays and lesbians.

The first president to openly support gay marriage won re-election. I know I, along with most of my gay and lesbian family, were beyond excited to see the election called in the favor of President Barack Obama.

However, just as notable, for the first time in American history, gay marriage won at the ballot box. Maine, Maryland, and Washington all are on track to legalize gay marriage as of this writing.

Even more, Wisconsin has voted Tammy Baldwin into the U.S. Senate. This makes the first time the U.S. Senate has had an openly gay member.

This is truly an historic day for all gays and lesbians in America!

Go Equality!
