Domestic Partnerships in Oregon...Judge Has Lifted Injunction!!

In late-breaking news, Federal Judge Michael Mossman has lifted his temporary temporary injunction on domestic partnerships in the state of Oregon. Both KGW and Gay Right's Watch are reporting that this conservative judge has sided with us in this case! Excellent news for those who were supposed to have been able to file back on January 1 for their Domestic Partnership in our state. Celebrate with us, would you?

Congratulations for you and the state of Oregon. Let's hope things continue to progress in the proper direction (as opposed to regressing. That would be the wrong direction, despite the fact that "regress" is a fun word.)

Oh, and OMG that photo! I love it! I had a mad crush on any number of guys who looked a lot like that when I was that age. The big curly hair, the huge glasses. Classic. My glasses were probably about that big, and my hair was long and almost hippy looking. What a time it was. Scary; truly.
