Bill and Melinda Gates have donated an additional $500,000 towards marriage equality in Washington State. The couple had previously donated $100,000 to Washington United for Marriage back in June to help with the Approval of Referendum 74, which would keep same-sex marriage legal in the state.

A Gates family spokesperson said of the donation, ““Bill and Melinda Gates made a second contribution to the Referendum 74 campaign because they support marriage equality and believe the law is good for Washington state.”
