Legalizing Gay Marriage: Progress or Regress?

From Maimonides, Laws of Forbidden Relations 21:8 (my translation):
Lesbian relations are forbidden and it is among the “doings of Egypt” that we have been warned about as it is said, “After the doings of the land of Egypt, wherein ye dwelt, shall ye not do”. The sages said, “What did they do? A man marries a man, and a woman marries a woman, and a woman marries two men.”
What would Maimonides say?
