The rejoicing that began at midnight at City Hall spread blissfully throughout the early morning hours, as the first of many same-sex couples were married in Minnesota. And those warm emotions spread all the way to Washington, as Rep. Keith Ellison celebrated marriage equality in Minnesota with a lively but all-too-brief take on Woody Guthrie's folk classic, "This Land Is Your Land."
It turns out that Jeremy Messersmith, John Munson, Matt Wilson, Adam Levy, Bethany Larson, Lucy Michelle, Rachel Kilgour, Chris Koza, and the Twin Cities Gay Men's Chorus weren't the only ones singing in celebration of marriage equality in Minnesota, with Ellison himself making his voice heard from Washington, D.C., in support of all the newly married couples.
