Marriage Equality: The Moment Of Victory In Minnesota

Posted by Phoenix Woman on November 10, 2012

From the YouTube description:

At 1:45 a.m., Campaign Manager Richard Carlbom of Minnesotans United for All Families announced to campaign staff and board members that the vote on the proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage in Minnesota was too close to call. As he was about to end his remarks and tell everyone to get some sleep, Carlbom was told by the campaign’s communications director Kelly Schwinghammer, “The AP just called it.” An impromptu, joyous, tear-filled celebration ensued. It was the first time in U.S. history that an anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment had been defeated. (Video by Robert Arvid Nelsen)

Take a bow, Minnesota: You — and Maryland, and Maine, and Washington — represent the point that showed the unstoppable force for equality, and that the moral arc of the universe does indeed bend towards justice.
