Freedom to Marry


Mark your calendars for February 12th! Why? It's

FREEDOM TO MARRY DAY!

On National Freedom to Marry Day, same-sex couples are encouraged to go to their local marriage license offices to request marriage licenses. This will raise awareness of the harms and impact that the inability to marry causes on their families. This national event is hosted yearly by Marriage Equality USA (MEUSA) and this year, they have teamed up with Join the Impact to make this their largest Marriage Counter Action yet!

HOW SHOULD LESBIATOPIA READERS GET INVOLVED?
Please help us lend support to MEUSA as we draw national attention to the many committed couples who are not afforded the right to marry. We ask that any readers who are able will reach out to their local MEUSA chapter and offer support in making this event a success.
In those cities where an MEUSA does not exist, we ask that any same sex couple who is able to take some time that day to go apply for a license. It would make an even bigger impact if you could call your local press and ask them to cover your story. The idea is to bring awareness to the world to the inequality that exists for same sex couples in this nation.
