Microsoft endorses gay marriage bill in Washington state

Wow. That’s one heck of a turnaround from 2005 when Joe and I led the charge against Microsoft for saying at the time that it would no longer take a stand on gay rights legislation, after being beaten up by a religious right preacher. Joe and I won that battle. And we’re seeing the fruits of it today. Good job, Microsoft.

PS You can check out the entire archive of our campaign against Microsoft here – you’ll need to scroll down, and back several pages, to get to the beginning – it was a big campaign.
