Add comment on:Same Sex Couples Request Marriage Licenses in San Mateo
Same-sex couples requesting marriage licenses today were joined by members of supporting organizations, guest speakers, and the Raging Grannies on the front steps of the San Mateo County Clerk’s office. Their requests for marriage licenses was symbolic of the struggle that continues for full equality for gays and lesbians. San Mateo County Deputy Assessor County Clerk-Recorder Theresa Rabe spoke out in support of full marriage rights. She said that the short period in which gays and lesbians were able to marry legally in California was sadly cut off by Proposition 8, which passed in November of 2008, and shared a scrapbook of wedding photos taken at the county courthouse during that time.
