Kentucky Is Bringing You National Gay Marriage, America

So proud of our brave couples.

From the Fairness Campaign:

The United States Supreme Court has decided it will take up same-sex marriage cases from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Tennessee!

Congratulations to the plaintiffs in Bourke v. Beshear and Love v. Beshear and their legal representation on this momentous and historic step towards LGBT Fairness!

From the Supreme Court:

The cases are consolidated and the petitions for writs of certiorari are granted limited to the following questions: 1) Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex? 2) Does the Fourteenth Amendment require a state to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-state?

We've collected more than 20,000 messages to Kentucky legislators in support of Fairness! Now, we need dozens of volunteers to help process the legislative messages in our office.

If you can spare an hour or two in the next several weeks, please contact or (502) 893-0788!
