Gay Couple, ACLU File Suit Challenging Alabama’s Gay Marriage Ban
The ACLU and the ACLU of Alabama filed a lawsuit today in the U.S. District Court in Birmingham on behalf of April and Ginger Aaron-Brush who were wed in Massachusetts but want their marriage recognized in their home state.
Said April Aaron-Brush in a press release: “The word marriage, in itself, brings validity and respect to any committed relationship. One’s marriage status shouldn’t change simply by crossing state lines. Gay couples seek to be married for the very same reasons that opposite-sex couples choose to be married— love, honor and commitment.”
