    When there are 50 states and DC and almost every state has something different based on a large number of factors, there is almost no way to make it easy to read. That's just the confusion from reading a chart and that is nothing compared to the confusion of a gay couple traveling or wanting or needing to move to another state.

    I don't understand how a single person can adopt but a gay couple can't? Makes zero sense.

    Yes... but only thanks to the Iowa supreme Court judges that as a result of upholding marriage equality lost their reelection:

    This really does underscore the political risk Obama took today and explains why he hesitated in making a public declaration for gay marriage for so long...

    And that Florida is among the lowest in hate crimes. That alone is a huge factor in deciding which state to visit or live. icon_wink.gif

    Hmm... I don't think this chart is entirely up to date. Illinois does have hospital visitation for civil union partners.

    The only thing Illinois doesn't offer for gays is marriage. Our civil union law is equivalent to marriage at the state level (aside from the name), which is nice.

    Unfortunately, until DOMA is repealed, even the states that do have gay marriage only have it at the state level. We still have a lot of work ahead of us. DOMA needs to go.
