“(Reuters) – A federal judge on Monday ruled Nebraska’s ban on gay marriage unconstitutional in a decision that could allow same-sex couples to marry in the state within a week.
U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon issued a preliminary injunction in the case brought by seven same-sex couples in the state, calling Nebraska’s ban an “unabashedly gender-specific infringement of the equal rights of its citizens.”
Such great news from the American State of Nebraska that we had to celebrate and what fun we had here in Umbria, Italy at Bellaugello Gay Guest House all because Vince, our Workawayer is from Nebraska we felt so much involved and closer to the ‘action’ that we had to celebrate by my inviting friends and neighbours for what I christened a ‘Cena Nebraskana’ or Nebraskan dinner which of course Vince cooked using recipes from his Grandmother who was originally from Sicily.
We dined off home stuffed artichokes, fresh from the market, home made pasta and turkey breast with a lemon and caper sauce, finished off with a Nebraskan fruit crisp and a goodly selection of local cakes and of course a toast to Nebraska! Well done guys Fabulous news!
