Don’t worry, California, you can come to Iowa
Iowa Surpeme Court says same sex marriage is legal in the state in a unanimous decision.
The decision makes Iowa the first Midwestern state, and the fourth nationwide, to allow same-sex marriages. Lawyers for Lambda Legal, a gay rights group that financed the court battle and represented the couples, had hoped to use a court victory to demonstrate acceptance of same-sex marriage in heartland America.

I’m so proud I could burst. I’m so happy I could fly. I’m so giddy that I’m inarticulate.
We did it. We DID IT. Our state–our state! Iowa! Iowa! Pokey old Iowa!
I hurt so badly today that I spent most of the night crying, but suddenly I don’t give a damn. Iowa. Iowa is a benchmark of equality. My state.
So, so proud of my LJ handle today. So proud. SO PROUD!!!!!
