Connecticut: GLAD Scores Another Marriage Victory
Connecticut: GLAD Scores Another Marriage Victory
Dear Rex,

This is an extraordinary day!

In an historic decision, Connecticut's Supreme Court ruled today that gay and lesbian couples in the Constitution State deserve marriage. Not domestic partnerships or civil unions, but full and equal marriage and the respect, dignity and security that only marriage provides.

Today's ruling in GLAD's case Kerrigan & Mock et al v. Connecticut Department of Public Health makes Connecticut the second state in New England - and the third in the United States - to swing open the doors to true equality for lesbian and gay couples.

In the coming days, GLAD will work to answer question about the decision, its impact on GLAD's New England Marriage Campaign and how to marry in Connecticut. Visit www.glad.org for these updates, and to read more about this historic victory - check back frequently for the latest information.

We want to salute the people who made this day possible: the eight plaintiff couples who hung in there for the four years it took for this case to be resolved; our cooperating attorneys Maureen M. Murphy of Murphy, Murphy & Nugent; Kenneth J. Bartschi and Karen Dowd of Horton, Shields & Knox; and Renee Redman of the Connecticut Civil Liberties Union. We also commend Love Makes a Family and the Connecticut legislature, who have both done tremendous work in moving the ball forward on gay and lesbian issues.

This amazing win would not have been possible without their hard work, and without the help of supporters like you. I hope you can join us tonight in Hartford, and I hope you'll make a generous donation now so we can build on this great victory. With great joy,

Lee Swislow
