DC Mayor Signs Gay Marriage Bill
It’s anticipated that by March gays in DC will be able to marry, as Mayor Adrian M. Fenty signed an historic bill that passed the DC City Council earlier in the week. The bill must still pass a 30-day Congressional review, but it’s likely Congress will leave it alone. The signing took place at All Souls Church.
