And he wasn’t the only one: Three other politicians who are outspokenly opposed to marriage equality voted for the “Marriage for All” bill. Guaino was mocked by his colleagues on the other side of the aisle, and subsequently changed his vote. However, it didn’t matter; the bill passed by over 100 votes and now heads François Hollande, the country’s Socialist president, who campaigned on the issue of gay marriage and will sign the bill. source

France became the 14th country in the world to allow same-sex couples to wed Tuesday, when its parliament approved a law that has sparked often violent street protests and a rise in homophobic attacks.
Read the complete story.

A big day for our French friends, no doubt. The law goes a step further than just marriage, as well — it also grants adoption rights to same-sex couples.

Map of the week.

Today’s news has obviously been dominated by coverage of the Supreme Court’s hearing on California’s Proposition 8, which banned same-sex marriages in the state back in 2008. And it’s worth keeping in mind just how the lay of the land looks for same-sex couples in this country. If this map looks familiar, that may be thanks to its resemblance of the electoral map from the 2012 presidential election — not a single state carried by the Romney/Ryan ticket so much as allows domestic partnerships, let alone civil unions or same-sex marriages.

CBS News poll measures emerging majorities on gay rights

  • 53of Americans believe it should be federally (edit: erroneously labeled it federal, our apologies) legal for same-sex couples to marry, according to a CBS News poll — though there is a +/- 3 margin of error.
  • 57of Americans believe there is nothing objectionable about same-sex relationships, a big shift — back in 1978, Gallup polled a 60% majority which believed homosexuality was “wrong.”
  • 53of Americans believe that homosexuality is neither changeable, nor a chosen trait. source
