Boston – June 26, 2013 – With the decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) as unconstitutional, the Supreme Court has affirmed that members of the LGBT community are not to be considered second class citizens in their relationships. We are grateful for the courage and hard work of those who have sought to make today happen – the pioneers in our own community here in Boston and in Massachusetts, the birthplace of marriage equality in the United States. We celebrate today with all who have supported our right to love who we want and to enter into committed relationships with our partners. The Court also returned the Prop 8 decision to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. This means that same sex marriage will be once again legal in that state but we know that the work in California continues to ensure that members of our community have the right to marry. We stand with our community there, and offer our support.
