Delaware Gets Civil

Last night Delaware Gov. Jack Markell signed a civil unions bill into law. Delaware now becomes the eighth state to legalize civil unions or domestic partnerships.

The signing in Wilmington was a big celebratory event, organized by Equality Delaware. The Democratic governor signed the bill before a jubilant crowd of over 600 people.

The Equality Delaware folks have a sense of humor—they held the event at a theater called The Queen.
