Mon Feb 15 2010 (Updated 02/16/10) Demonstration on National Freedom to Marry Day
Same Sex Couples Try to Apply for Marriage Licenses in San Mateo On February 12th, National Freedom to Marry Day, same-sex couples attempted to apply for licenses in San Mateo County. They were joined by supporters and guest speakers, including County Board of Supervisors President Rich Gordon, former Sheriff and County Supervisor Candidate Don Horsley, and PFLAG San Jose/Peninsula President Laurie Carter. The event coincided with dozens of similar rallies held nationwide.

San Mateo County Deputy Assessor County Clerk-Recorder Theresa Rabe spoke out in support of full marriage rights. She shared a scrapbook of wedding photos taken at the county courthouse during that time and invited those in attendance to record messages in the album. The scrapbook, that includes articles from the press as well as photos of gay marriages, will be donated to the county historical society when the time finally is reached when gay marriage are once again legal in California, Ms. Rabe said.
