"Legally Gay, 6-3"

Likely in reference to Lawrence v. Texas, a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court. The Court struck down the sodomy law in Texas and, by extension, invalidated sodomy laws in 13 other states, making same-sex sexual activity legal in every U.S. state and territory.

The vote was 6 to 3.
