Minnesota is set to become the nation's 12th state to allow gay marriages after its House voted to approve legislation which will take affect August 1st.
The bill that will allow gay marriages passes the House on a 75-59 vote.
The vote comes just six months after a movement in the state to ban gay marriages by making it unconstitutional failed after unexpected resistance from voters.
Minnesota would be the only midwestern state to allow gay marriages from legislation. Iowa allows it due to a court ruling.
