Marking Ten Years of Marriage Equality ...

Tomorrow (May 17) is the 10th Anniversary of the first same-sex marriages in Massachusetts. It's been a busy decade.

Here's a map of what's going on where about marriage equality ... thanks to Vox ...

... and Freedom to Marry has great detailed info on their site, including a state by state breakdown AND this helpful summary:
Seventeen states - CA, CT, DE, HI, IA, IL, ME, MD, MA, MN, NH, NJ, NM, NY, RI, VT, and WA - plus Washington, D.C. have the freedom to marry for same-sex couples.

In an additional eleven states, judges have issued rulings in favor of the freedom to marry, with many of these rulings now stayed as they proceed to appellate courts: In AR, ID, MI, OK, TX, UT, and VA judges have struck down marriage bans, and in IN, KY, OH, and TN, judges have issued more limited pro-marriage rulings.
And -- this just in -- Monday, May 19th at noon is when the Oregon case ruling is expected. Stay tuned.

(And Happy Anniversary, Massachussetts!)
