Tonight’s question, greetings, and banter here. (More)

Yesterday was a mandate for LGBT equality, with marriage equality proposals winning in Maine, Maryland, and Washington, with Minnesota blocking a proposal to enshrine heterosexual privilege in the state constitution, and with Wisconsin’s Tammy Baldwin becoming our first openly lesbian member of the U.S. Senate, other LGBT candidates winning a record number of U.S. House races, and voters rejecting attacks on state judges and elected officials targeted by anti-LGBT groups. Will 2012 go down in history as the turning point on LGBT equality?
