I know its been awhile since my last post and this isn't really an update. Time's been flying by so far this year. Somehow it just started, but it's already April. How did that happen?

Anyway, after seeing winter soldier I was inspired to write some stories (lets hope the slot doesn't abandon me before i'm done) and I've got a question.

When did gay sex become legal I'm the US? I found the date for the end of "don't ask don't tell", but got a bit confused about outside of the military. The dates I found were far more recent than I had thought and were interwoven with the same sex marriage topics.

My intention is to have Sam bring Steve uptodate on the issue and I don't want to get it wrong.

Now I should get back to work though...

Nationwide, gay sex became legal in the USA in 2003 with the Lawrence v. Texas decision made by the Supreme Court.

At the time, though, only 15 states still had sodomy laws on their books; see this chart for a more specific timetable. The first state to repeal its sodomy laws was Illinois in 1962.
