New Census Data Helps Washington Lawmakers and Activists Strategize Gay Marriage Push
This Seattle Post-Intelligencer article tells a personal family story, while providing us with new facts:
“— More than 24,000 households in Washington are led by same-sex partners.
— In Jefferson County on the Olympic Peninsula and in San Juan County, comprising most of its namesake islands, more than one out of every 50 couples is same-sex.
— Seattle shows that 3 percent of couples are male partners and more than 2 percent are female partners. The number of same-sex couples in King County grew by 37 percent over the decade, slower than the state as a whole.
— Nearly one-quarter of same-sex couples lead a household with children.”
