On Tuesday April 28th the Supreme Court will hear arguments in marriage cases involving Ohio, Michigan, Kentucky and Tennessee. This could very well be the last marriage equality case the Supreme Court takes on, and all signs point to an overwhelming victory for LGBT Americans. The decision won’t be announced until sometime in June of this year, but this is history in the making. We could have nationwide marriage equality by the middle of this year!
Organized by Unite4Marriage , composed of members of a variety of groups (including GETEqual, Freedom to Marry and GLAAD), Fresno joins the many other rallies and vigils across the country on Tuesday, April 28th. We will gather in front of the Robert E Coyle Federal Courthouse at 2500 Tulare St in downtown Fresno to show our support for marriage equality and to raise our voices in solidarity. Gay Central Valley and the Fresno LGBT Community Center are hosting this event. The rally will run from 5pm-7pm.
“This is the pivotal moment for marriage equality in the United States,” says Chris Jarvis, President of Gay Central Valley. “It’s all come to this point, when the Supreme Court of the United States will hopefully end this debate once and for all and mandate the legality of same sex marriage in every state in the nation.”
Local media is invited and welcome. The event will start at 5pm with signage and messages. Speeches and reflections will follow. Married and yet to be married same sex couples will gather to show their support for the Supreme Court being on the right side of history.
