Gay marriages still valid in Canada, despite hiccup

gaywrites:

Recently a Canadian lawyer announced a loophole in the country’s same-sex marriage regulations that seemed to say binational marriages would be invalidated unless marriage equality was legal in a spouse’s home country.

This would have had a particular impact on the hundreds of Australian couples who have been married in certain regions of Canada since 2003. However, the government of Canada responded by closing the political loophole, keeping those marriages valid.

Australian Marriage Equality spokesman Rodney Croome said the Canadian government’s announcement would come as a ”great relief” for many couples.

Peter Furness, of Chippendale, said he and his partner, Theo, who married in Vancouver in 2006, were rocked by news their union might not be valid. He said it was ”absurd” Australia had not legalised gay marriage.

”I can’t believe Australia is still standing out and dragging its feet,” he said.

This is certainly a relief, and it even adds fuel to the fire for marriage equality in Australia soon. Sometimes positives can come from negatives if people are willing to stand up for what’s right.

Minnesota elects Native American lesbian to legislature

gaywrites:

In an election this week, Minnesota became the first state to elect an openly lesbian Native American woman to its legislature. 

Democrat Susan Allen will represent District 61B, which consists of 62 percent minorities. She’s proud of her diversity and says it will add to her work:

Earlier in her campaign, she noted, “I reflect the great diversity of our district, as a Native American woman and a member of the LGBT community, and hope to bring this important voice to the state capital to offer more balanced, representative contributions and input.”

Following her victory, Allen told Southwest Minneapolis Patch that she was eager to dive into legislative work. “My early priorities will be to bring jobs and job training to our district, work on a fair tax system for Minnesota and fight the discriminatory constitutional marriage amendment,” she said. 

Awesome! I’m sure we can expect great things from her.
