Gay Marriage Begins in Washington D.C.

Just In: The Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD),
the nation’s lesbian, gay, bisexual & transgender (LGBT) media
advocacy & anti-defamation organization, has staff on the ground
for the first day that gay & lesbian couples can marry in D.C....:)
“Today’s marriages will allow couples in Washington, D.C. to take
care of & provide for each other & their families- rights that all
Americans deserve,” said Jarrett Barrios, President of the Gay &
Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation. "More & more, lawmakers
& the public are realizing that gay & lesbian families deserve equal
protections under the law. As the world watches couples in our
nation’s capitol wed, we applaud the hard work of DC for Marriage,
Campaign for All DC Families, the local clergy & the organizations
& couples whose personal stories made this historic moment
possible,” Barrios said.
