Thirty Rhode Island-based queer couples gathered in Massachusetts this weekend to celebrate the state’s pro-gay marriage laws.
Massachusetts’ high court ruled last year that their laws do not restrict Rhode Island residents from taking advantage of the state’s gay marriage legislation.
Boston Globe explains:
Dozens of gay marriage supporters met at the Statehouse to mark the one year anniversary of a court decision that allowed them to marry in Massachusetts, and to ask for the same right in Rhode Island.
Last year, a Superior Court judge in Massachusetts ruled that nothing in that state’s laws prevents gay couples in Rhode Island from marrying across the border.
Perhaps Rhode Island’s legislators will be inspired by all these shiny, happy gay people.
