I spend my days working to working to win marriage nationwide as New Media Director for Freedom to Marry. As part of my job, I come across an amazing array of stories from folks all over the country eager to marry their partners.
i want to share this video of Illinois State Representative Deborah Mell announcing her engagement to Christin Baker and her decision to discuss their engagement on the floor of the state legislature.
This story from what is sometimes refers to as a "flyover state" shows that despite protests from some in the LGBT community that marriage is only an issue for gays on the coasts same-sex couples across the nation want the freedom to marry.
Video after the jump.
