Celebrate same-sex marriage in Vermont with HubbyHubby!

1 09 2009

In celebration of legislation allowing same-sex marriage in Vermont that is effective as of today, Ben and Jerry’s scoop shops in Vermont have renamed their Chubby Hubby ice cream flavor to Hubby Hubby for this whole month:

A Ben and Jerry’s wedding truck is to pass through Vermont, handing out free HubbyHubby to the public. Now isn’t that sweet? Says Walt Freese, chief executive officer of Ben & Jerry’s:

At the core of Ben & Jerry’s values we believe that social justice can and should be something that every human being is entitled to. From the very beginning of our 30-year history, we have supported equal rights for all people.

Same-sex marriage licenses are also offered in Massachusetts, Connecticut and Iowa, with legislation passed in Maine (which is facing obstacles) and New Hampshire (where same sex marriage will be legal in January). Similar legislation is pending in New York.
