OLYMPIA – Moments ago, Governor Christine Gregoire made history as she signed the Marriage Equality bill into law.

Come join Pride Foundation supporters in celebrations taking place all over Washington State tonight after 5:30 PM. The Washington United for Marriage Campaign is asking everyone to raise a glass at 6:00 PM to toast this magical moment. (See the list of participating venues below.)

Tonight is a night to celebrate. Washington has become the seventh state to say a profound and resounding ‘Yes!’ to marriage equality.

However, opponents of the bill have begun organizing in Washington State promising to bring the issue to the ballot in November.

Pride Foundation is honored to be a leading member of the Campaign. Please consider making a gift to The Advocacy Fund at Pride Foundation or to the Washington United for Marriage Campaign.

People will be celebrating the signing of the Marriage Equality Bill at gatherings across the state from 5:30 to 7:30 PM on Monday night. Everyone will raise a glass in celebration at 6:00 PM.
