PHOTO: Oregon State University's student newspaper Staff, "Editorial: Legalize gay marriage here too," Barometer, Nov. 6, 2012, p. 3 shows the progress made since 40 years ago when the U.S. Supreme Court rejected Jack Baker's gay marriage case. The history of Baker and his connection to Oregon State University is documented in the history by Thomas Kraemer, "Corvallis, Oregon State University gay activism 1969-2004," posted April 30, 2010 on OutHistory.org. This editorial adds to a previous pro-gay marriage opinion printed this year in "The Barometer," See my previous post OSU students support drag, gay marriage and anti-gay newspapers (10/25/12).
