Supreme Court Bolsters Gay Marriage With Two Major Rulings (6/26/13) - In a pair of major victories for the gay rights movement, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that married same-sex couples were entitled to federal benefits and, by declining to decide a case from California, effectively allowed same-sex marriages there.
These women were the first NYers to marry last year but they are still denied 1138 federal marriage rights because tyrannical theocRATs in Congress do not think they are human enough for unalienable human rights or American enough for unconditional constitutional equality. They have waited their whole lives for equal rights. Will they live long enough to see that day?
Jennifer Warner and Jackie Youngs in Downtown Brooklyn: “In 2004, we bought rings and went to Central Park.” Warner said. “We were standing there, committed to each other. We always considered ourselves married. When we got legally married, we said it was for practical reasons. But it was so much more than that. We were surrounded by friends and family. We felt recognized, finally — even though we’d considered ourselves married for years.” #gay #LGBT #NYC
