OMG VA!

OMG! On October 6, 2014, in an unexpected non-decision, the Supreme Court denied cert in several marriage cases, immediately bringing equality to my home state of Virginia as well as Utah, Oklahoma, Wisconsin and Indiana.

Arlington County held a presser with Virginia’s Attorney General, Mark Herring, and state and county elected officials.

HerringelectedsOct6County clerk Paul Ferguson announced that his office would begin issuing licenses immediately.
