Watch the Slow Progress of Marriage Equality in One GIF

Pin it


As of now 16 states have legalized gay marriage, 33 states still ban it either because of their constitution or state laws, and then we have New Mexico with no professed opinion either way (although some counties have started issuing marriage licenses in recent months).

The above GIF shows developments in the fight for marriage equality from 1973-2014. While it looks black at first, the pink and purple start creeping in there to give us hope.

Gay marriage in Hawaii goes into effect in December, Illinois in June 2014 and Oregon now recognizes out of state marriage. So maybe New Mexico should stop watching re-runs of Breaking Bad for five minutes and sack up in the fight for marriage equality. What do you say?
