SALEM - Noting that it capped more than 30 years of work, Gov. Ted Kulongoski signed legislation into law Wednesday morning that will recognize same-sex unions as domestic partnerships and ban discrimination against gays and lesbians.
Kulongoski called Senate Bill 2 and House Bill 2007 “bills that are actually transformational,” and he said they declare that “Oregon is a land of equal opportunity for all our citizens.” Both bills will take effect Jan. 1.
More than 100 people watched and applauded as the governor signed the bills on the west steps of the Capitol, including former governor Barbara Roberts, many legislators and dozens of gay rights activists.
Nine other states and the District of Columbia have legally recognized same-sex unions by granting them at least some of the rights of marriage. In Oregon, a same sex couple will register in their county to enter a domestic partnership contract that will give them all of the state benefits of marriage. It also gives them the responsibilities - including the possibility of having to pay child and partner support in the event of a dissolution.
It is illegal under current law to refuse to hire or otherwise discriminate against a person because of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age and mental or physical disability. During his first term in the Oregon House in 1975, Kulongoski introduced legislation that would have added sexual orientation to that list, but the proposal failed.

GEE, IT’S TOO BAD THAT I’M A HETEOSEXUAL WHITE MALE. IF NOT FOR THAT FACT, I MIGHT ACTUALLY QUALIFY AS A PROTECTED CLASS. LESSON LEARNED!
2 people interview for a job:
They both aren’t qualified, neither one gets the job, the straight guy has no recourse. The GAY guy says they didn’t hire me because I’m GAY.
So he sues the company and the company has to defend themselves, becauses he claims he didn’t get hired cause he’s GAY.
In reality he was NOT qualified, but he sue’s the company and is forced to get hired because he is GAY.
and on & on now.
The same goes for housing.
