The Gay Month of May
The month of May is the first full month of Spring in the Northern hypersphere, the month when many countries come out of winter and start celebrating with more various celebrations than we can name here, but May of 2013 will long be remember as the month when US legislators came out for equality in marriage, allowing gay people to get married. (At Right: The City of Minneapolis celebrated the passing of gay marriage by lighting up the bridge across the Mississippi River in rainbow colors.)
In the US this May saw three more states enacted laws making gay marriage available to same sex couples: Rhode Island May 2, Delaware May 11, Minnesota May 12. Gay marriage also become legal in Maryland on January 1 of this year.
In other countries Uruguay, New Zealand and France have legalized equality in marriage this year. To the many celebrations of May, perhaps gay people need to add a day to memorized their increasing civil rights.
