CONCORD, N.H. — Two years ago today, the United States Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have the fundamental right to marriage equality.
Linds Jakows, campaign manager of Freedom New Hampshire, released the following statement marking the important anniversary:
“For two years now, loving and committed same-sex couples have enjoyed the right to marry as well as all the rights and responsibilities associated with it. The decision marked a critical and joyous moment in the LGBT community’s quest for justice. While we celebrate marriage equality, we recognize that we still have much work to do before all Americans and Granite Staters are truly treated the same under the law. In our own state of New Hampshire, there is no law protecting transgender people from discrimination in housing, employment or public spaces. Lawmakers have the opportunity to correct this injustice and prove that New Hampshire truly values the rights and liberties of everyone who lives in or visits our state.”
