But many gay men and lesbians might be surprised to learn that some popular charities they have supported in the past have anti-gay policies or maintain close ties with anti-gay groups.

While the decision did not legalize same- sex marriage outright, as some activists had hoped it would, it also did not foreclose the possibility, and in fact noted that gay marriages would be an "obvious" way for the legislature to provide the benefits. The justices said extending the benefits to - same-sex couples "as Vermonters who seek > nothing more, nor less, man legal protection § and security for their avowed commitment to £ an intimate and lining relationship is simply, & when all is said and done, a recognition of our " common humanity."
