Nevada is the first state to protect Gay Marriage in state constitution.

Nevada has become a pioneer in something unexpected- protecting gay marriage in their constitution. 

Over two-thirds of Nevada voters decided that the Nevada constitution be amended to remove a dated provision that stated marriage should only be between a man and a woman. 

“This overwhelming majority should be a reminder that LGBTQ equality is not just the right thing to do, it is exactly what Nevadans want,” said Human Rights Campaign’s Nevada director, Briana Escamilla.

Historically, the Supreme Court has overturned similar same-sex marriage bans. However, this is the first time state voters have overturned a ban.

A HUGE win for queer Nevadans, and a sign at how the state is turning more progressive. 

We're sure our favorite fictional Nevada gay, Terry Bernadino, is celebrating with his fiancee.
