Colorado to Allow Gay Civil Unions

The Rocky Mountains just got more gay friendly. The Colorado House voted Tuesday to approve a bill allowing same-sex civil unions. Despite protests from Republicans that the bill doesn’t offer religious exemptions, it passed 39–26, with two of the House’s 28 Republicans voting to approve. “I’m a Republican and a conservative and I like this bill,” said Rep. Cheri Gerou. The bill is now on its way to Gov. John Hickenlooper, who has already publicly supported it, and will become law on May 1. Now take a bong hit and celebrate.
