DOMA: The stories behind Gill

In the Federal Case Gill, Massachusetts is bringing a suit because legally married Massachusetts citizens are deprived equal rights. That means that the ca. 1400 rights given to married couples under Federal law, are denied to them.

They are same sex couples, and while their marriages are perfectly legal, at least in Massachusetts, they are lesser citizens federally.

Why does it matter?

Read their stories here.
In these stories, loving couples, widows and widowers, from all walks of life, describe how DOMA hurts their families. A new story will be added each week, so please check back ofte
