2012 is already building on the tremendous progress towards equality in 2011. Today's historic announcement from Washington State Governor Gregoire shows the momentum from marriage equality in New York and victories around the country is spreading rapidly from coast to coast. With every passing year, we see support for equal marriage rights growing rapidly. A recent poll showed 55% of Washingtonians would vote against a ballot initiative that attempted to repeal a marriage equality bill.
