LGBTQ Bill Pass: Gay marriage is now legal in America. The US Parliament passed the Same Sex Marriage Bill. It was a moment of great joy for the LGBTQ community. US President Joe Biden expressed happiness as soon as the bill was passed by the US Senate (Parliament).
On passing the bill, US President Biden said that love is love and Americans should have the right to marry the person they love. Biden said that by honoring same-sex marriage, the US Senate has proved that America is on the verge of affirming a fundamental truth.
61 votes in favor of the bill
President Biden told in his statement that 61 votes were cast in support of this bill, while 36 people opposed the bill. Now as soon as the President signs this bill, it will turn into a law. Chuck Schumer, the leader of the ruling party in the Senate, expressed happiness over the passage of the bill. He said this is an important step towards greater justice for LGBTQ Americans.
SC had given recognition in 2015
Please tell that homosexuality has been a big issue in America for decades. In 2015, the US Supreme Court recognized gay society. And in June, the US Supreme Court overturned its own 5-decade-old decision legalizing abortion. The LGBTQ community was scared by this incident. Progressives feared that same-sex marriage could also be in danger.
Recently there was firing in LGBTQ club
However, even after this, the people of LGBTQ community were not considered safe. Recently, an unknown miscreant fired indiscriminately at an LGBTQ club in Colorado, USA. In this incident, 5 people were killed, while 18 people were injured. This incident was strongly condemned by President Biden. Biden had said that America cannot tolerate hatred and neither should it. We must address the inequalities that contribute to violence against LGBTQI+ people.
