Here's another gay data point from yesterday's election. In Kalamazoo, Michigan, voters passed a law guaranteeing equal rights for gays and lesbians in employment and housing by a 62-38 margin. (Hat tip: Joe My God.) Hooray and all that.
On the same day, voters in Portland, Maine, upheld a law guaranteeing marriage equality -- a much more progressive step -- by a 74-26 margin.
