WATCH: Rory’s Story

Few things are as distressing as when a loved one is sick and hospitalized. Yet, as far too many same-sex couples can attest to, the distress only elevates in these situations when committed partners and family members are deprived of the protections and responsibilities that only marriage provides. Our friends at Marriage Equality Ireland produced a short video illustrating the concrete harms that marriage discrimination imposes not only on same-sex couples but on their family members too.

Watch "Rory's Story" and then take a moment to contact your federal elected officials and ask them to repeal DOMA so that no family member is deprived of the right to care for someone they love.
