Hawaii will officially join the growing number of States who value true freedom and equality Wednesday when Governor Neil Abercrombie signs a recently passed bill allowing same-sex civil unions.

Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie will sign a bill that offers gay and lesbian couples benefits and responsibilities nearly identical to those of marriage on Wednesday, the Honolulu Star Advertiser reported.

“I have always believed that civil unions respect our diversity, protect people’s privacy, and reinforce our core values of equality and aloha,” Abercrombie said in a statement. “For me this bill represents equal rights for all the people of Hawaii.”–Neil Abercrombie
