BREAKING: Washington passes same-sex marriage bill

| »
Same-sex marriage

The marriage equality train has now officially reached Washington State:

Lawmakers in the US state of Washington have passed a bill legalising gay marriage, making Washington the seventh US state to back the measure.

The House voted 55-43 in favour of the legislation, a week after it was passed by the state's Senate.

Democratic Governor Chris Gregoire is expected to sign the measure into law next week.

It comes a day after a California court declared a ban on gay marriage unconstitutional.

A good week for all. Well, except for the bigots, that is. (Which makes it an even better week.)

So … where to next?
