Switzerland adopts gay partnership law!

Both houses of the Swiss Parliament, writes Un Swissroll (in French, though), have adopted the gay partnership law. This is obviously very good news indeed but, as 'Un swissroll' cautions, there most probably remains one more hurdle to surmount, assuming those opposed to the law can gather the 50,000 signatures necessary for the law to be put before citizens in a referendum, perhaps in December or more probably next year sometime.
