LOVE & EQUALITY (GET MAGAZINE, June 2012)
Natalie Gruppuso: I began this project in January 2007. At that time, Massachusetts was the only state in the US with marriage rights for same-sex couples. Since then, over 18,000 couples have been married in Massachusetts and thousands more have married in Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Iowa, New York, and Washington D.C. There are advocates fighting to legalize same-sex marriage in states across the nation, and on May 9th, 2012, President Obama made history by declaring that he supports marriage for same-sex couples. Progress is being made, but there are also people fighting against same-sex marriage.
