A red state which just had some drama surrounding their “right to discriminate” bill is showing support for gay marriage.

Herald Weekend Post
Okay, you may be thinking that newspapers have been publishing images of gay weddings for quite some time now. You can see it in the New York Times, the Denver post, and the Washington Inquire…but this newspaper is based out of Africa. As many of us know Uganda passed the Anti-Homosexuality bill not that long ago and there is a rising tide of anti-gay sentiment in Africa.

This week marks the ten-year anniversary of the beginning of San Francisco’s “Winter of Love,” in which 4,037 same-sex couples married at San Francisco City Hall from February 12 to March 11, 2004.
