Celebrating Marriage Equality in Utah

The message came through at 1:53 pm on Friday: “KSL NEWSRADIO: Fed judge rules Utah’s Amendment 3 unconstitutional. Amend 3 denies marriage between 1 woman & 1 man and bans gay marriage.” A little cheer escaped my lips as I sat in my office in disbelief. I immediately called Jolene, my wife of 23 days after our marriage in Vancouver, WA, and told her the news. I asked her to search online to see if she could find out if it was true. In the meantime, the Salt Lake Tribune website issued a release stating that Amendment 3 had been struck down. Read more…

Marvin Burrows: Love Warrior

Last weekend, our community lost one of our most powerful advocates and a truly wonderful person: Marvin Burrows.

Give the Gift of Equality – Create an Equality Registry to Benefit MEUSA

Give the Gift of Equality – Create an Equality Registry to Benefit MEUSA

In lieu of a traditional wedding registry, we created an Equality Registry, a personalized website created by MEUSA where friends and family can quickly and easily make fully tax-deductible gifts to support the important work of this organization.

For a grassroots volunteer organization like MEUSA, even a few dollars go a long way toward efforts to secure marriage equality in the more than 30 states that still prohibit loving same-sex couples from marrying.

For those of you who now have the opportunity to legally wed, please consider setting up an Equality Registry to benefit MEUSA and its critical work in your home state and across the country.

It just takes a few minutes to set up your own Equality Registry.

MEUSA Thanks the More than One Million LGBT Service Members and Veterans For Their Service

This Veterans Day, take a moment to thank a Veteran for his or her service. Also, take a moment to think of the men and women who are abroad putting their lives at risk so we can rest easy at home. Now, take it further and think about the partners/husbands/wives of those LGBT Servicemembers out there who wait for their loved ones to return. Or the LGBT Veteran who walks for the first time into the hospital hand in hand with his or her partner, a silent bundle of nerves waiting to be called out and shot down. Most importantly, thank a Veteran. You could be the one person who makes his or her day.
