One year after marriage ban, gays still seek marriage licenses in Missouri
August 3, 2005
To mark the one year anniversary of the state's anti-gay marriage ban, discriminating against same-sex residents, gays peacefully line up at city halls and courthouses throughout the state, seeking marriage licenses. This peaceful protest "puts a face" to those discriminated upon who are just seeking for what is right and fair under the law. "We're committed couples. We want the same recognition that heterosexual couples enjoy. We don't want to devalue marriage, we want to enhance it." [link]
