Montana, USA: Gov. Signs Bill To Repeal Sodomy Law

Written by scott on April 19th, 2013

Montana Gov. Steve BullockIt’s official! Montana has repealed its sodomy law, officially legalizing gay sex in the state. LGBTQ Nation reports:

An obsolete law deeming gay sex as deviant — akin to bestiality — was stricken from Montana code Thursday, prompting gay rights activists to say they hope that full legal equality may be close at hand. When Montana Gov. Steve Bullock signed Senate Bill 107 decriminalizing gay sex, cheers erupted in the Capitol’s Rotunda. It had been 16 years after the state Supreme Court ruled the law unconstitutional and 24 years after gay rights activists began their fight to take government out of the bedroom.

Texas, are you next? How about Maryland? Or any of the other 15 states who still have these laws on their books?
