Leaving On A High Note

Connecticut’s Love Makes A Family is leaving on a high note.

An advocacy group that was a major player in Connecticut’s gay marriage debate has decided to close its doors at the end of 2009. Leaders at “Love Makes a Family” say the 10-year-old group wants to conclude its work on a victorious note in the wake of last fall’s state Supreme Court decision legalizing same-sex marriage. The Hartford-based group was formed in 1999 to lobby for legislation letting gay couples legally adopt in Connecticut. It later grew into a statewide coalition of people and organizations supporting gay marriage.

Can you foresee the day when other major LGBT rights groups can successfully close shop?
