- Seattle designer Corianton Hale's adorable marriage will finally be legal.
The race came down to 52 percent of Washington voters approving the referendum that upholds the same-sex marriage law passed by Washington's legislature last year and 48 percent of people voting against. This was an expensive and hard-fought campaign, with big business donors like execs at Microsoft, Nike, Alaska Airlines, Starbucks, and the Gates Foundation kicking in millions for the pro-gay campaign. The marriage equality side wound up with quadruple the number of donations as the anti-gay side.
Now you're going to have to head up to Washington to smoke pot AND get gay married.
