Gay marriage is a huge issue in the United States, some states have allowed it after taking to time to really see that all people deserve to have their own rights, but my state, Indiana, still will not allow gays to marry.

It is giving all people the right to marry whomever they chose to, and it shows them that just because they are a little different does not mean that they do not belong in the world.
