I'm very happy about this. The fun part is watching the homophobes stamp their feet and cry.

Interesting, isn’t it, how things work..
Oklahoma has I believe 42 Indian nations. Most all have some two spirit history in their culture. One would think that Oklahoma would already have protections in place.

Here is just one example:
Little Axe Shawnee community was hit hard by the tornadoes that swept across central Oklahoma recently.
The Indiana Two-Spirit Society and First Nations Educational and Cultural Center are Partnering with the Central Oklahoma Two-Spirit Society to help bring needed supplies to this community.
Donations will be collected until June 9th, 2013

Or maybe:
(Tahlequah, OK, January 4, 2006)— In a ruling issued on December 22, 2005, the Judicial Appeals Tribunal of the Cherokee Nation, the highest Cherokee court, rejected an attempt by several tribal council members to invalidate the marriage of Cherokee citizens Kathy Reynolds and Dawn McKinley,

In briefs filed with the Court, the Council members argued that marriages between same-sex couples are inconsistent with Cherokee Nation culture, heritage, and tradition. But according to an affidavit submitted to the Court by Professor Brian Gilley, PhD, Assistant Professor of Anthropology at University of Vermont, and who is of Cherokee ancestry,“there is overwhelming evidence for the historic and cultural presence of multiple gender roles and same-sex relations among most if not all Native North Americans, including the Cherokee, and that they historically shared in the institution of marriage.” Professor Gilley’s affidavit described the historical gender diversity among the Cherokee people, as well as evidence of marriage between Cherokee same-sex couples.
