HRC Arkansas Celebrates Marriage Equality Anniversary

by HRC staff June 28, 2016

Post submitted by James Rector, HRC Arkansas Field Organizer

Last Friday, 50 people joined HRC Arkansas in downtown Little Rock in celebration of the Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges one year ago.

In a historic 5-4 ruling on June 28, 2015, the Supreme Court ruled that bans on marriage for same-sex couples are unconstitutional, paving the way for nationwide marriage equality.

Many individuals rallied around a cake that declared “Love Wins” to snap a quick photo. Attendees shared stories about where they were when they heard the ruling, and discussed the current climate post marriage equality in Arkansas.

Plaintiffs Angelia Frazier-Henson and her wife Kathy Henson were in attendance. Angelia briefly made remarks about their experience during the fight for marriage equality in the Natural State. She shared that marriage equality was only one milestone and urged individuals to continue the fight for full LGBTQ equality. Wes Givens also shared his experience of being on the steps of the Supreme Court when the decision was handed down. He remarked how the crowd celebrated for a full 20 minutes when the announcement was made.
