City Inside/Out: Same-Sex Marriage
City Inside/Out: Same-Sex Marriage
Since Washington State`s domestic partnership law took effect in 2007, gay rights advocates have been pushing for marriage equality here. Voters affirmed, in 2009, their acceptance of "Everything but Marriage" for gays and lesbians, leading many advocates to declare their work done. Recently though, Governor Chris Gregoire dropped a political bombshell with her push for a same-sex marriage bill this legislative session. Should marriage only be between one man and one woman, or should the state join six others in the country that recognize gay marriage? We meet a lesbian couple who are fighting for marriage equality, and hear from a Christian minister who vows to fight against it. Studio guests include Pastor Ken Hutcherson of Antioch Bible Church, King County Councilmember Joe McDermott, Josh Friedes of Equal Rights Washington, and Everett attorney Stephen Pidgeon.
