Minnesota Mayor Renames Landmark Bridge For Marriage Equality

You can call it the “Freedom to Marry Bridge” this week.

2. He changed the name of the city’s landmark Wabasha Street Freedom Bridge to the “Wabasha Street Freedom to Marry Bridge.”

The official order came in as the state Senate prepared to vote on making same sex marriage legal in the state, just days after the House voted to do so.

4. That is one good looking bridge.

Minnesota is poised to become the 12th state to legalize same-sex marriage as the final vote on the bill occurs today by the Minnesota Senate.
