The Austin City Council has voted to make the capital city of Texas the first in the state to formally endorse the legalization of same-sex marriages. The Thursday vote was unanimous.

The state of Texas doesn’t presently recognize same-sex marriages. State law defines marriage as strictly between a man and a woman.

However, councilmember Sheryl Cole says that although the vote is purely symbolic, “symbolic acts matter.”

According to supporting city documents, a 2010 University of Texas survey found that 63 percent of the Texans question support some form of legal civil union for same-sex couples. AgreeImage or disagree?
