Statement of Mayor Thomas M. Menino in Response to Today’s Supreme Court Decision
“Today is a great day for all of our people. Marriage equality first played out right here in Boston and like the many firsts Boston has championed it has proven to be the right path forward for a more open, inclusive America, where everyone is welcome to love, pray and believe however they choose. I am grateful for the Supreme Court’s decision to strike down the Defense Against Marriage Act. It gives our many employees and residents the rights of other married couples and more importantly recognizes that their love is no different.
In the weeks and months ahead, the nation will realize what we in Boston and Massachusetts have long known: we should be free to marry the person we love. We are one Boston – a victory for our gay and lesbian friends is a victory for all of us. Today, I am proud that our highest court upheld the values and laws that underscores our belief that diversity is the great strength of our city and our country. And I am so proud of my many friends and neighbors who fought for this ruling.
Even as we celebrate today’s decision, we must remember the millions of gay and lesbian couples who still cannot get married. While there is more work to be done, today is a signal to the rest of the country that full equality is coming.”
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.
