Even as the defeat of the federal Defense of Marriage Act sends tremors across the nation, Colorado Springs same-sex couples are still celebrating a slightly older victory.

While Colorado still forbids gay and lesbian couples from tying the knot, on May 1 the state offered them an olive branch, making civil unions legal. And according to the El Paso County clerk and recorder, plenty of lovebirds have been taking advantage of the new law.

In May alone, 100 same-sex couples took the plunge. Another 30 have civil-unioned so far in June.
