What started in Massachusetts has now been extended to the rest of the country after the Supreme Court struck down marriage discrimination nationwide!
This is a historic day for our nation, but as we bask in the glow of this landmark ruling, we must remain diligent in securing full non-discrimination protections for Transgender Bay Staters.
In response to the US Supreme Court’s decision to provide full equal marriage rights to every same-sex couple in the nation, Freedom Massachusetts co-chairs Mason Dunn and Kasey Suffredini issued the following response:
“Today’ US Supreme Court decision marks a historic and emotional moment in our continuing fight for full LGBT equality. Finally, same-sex couples all across the country will be able to stand before their friends and family, and make a lifelong commitment to the person they love. What was first possible just here in Massachusetts 11 years ago is now possible for couples across our nation, and that is a tremendous step forward.
But our work continues to improve the lives of LGBT people. As we celebrate today’s victory, we’re energized and inspired to bring the promise of a better tomorrow to all of the transgender residents and visitors to our state, who currently aren’t protected from discrimination in public spaces. We’re committed to demonstrating the broad support for these protections in Massachusetts, and we believe that in the very near future we’ll again have a transformational moment here in the Bay State, just like we did 11 years ago with marriage. This time, that transformational moment means showing our transgender friends and family members that we love and respect them, and that they deserve full and equal protection under our law.”
Love is now the law of the land. But progress doesn’t stop at the Supreme Court. Let’s harness the momentum to secure comprehensive non-discrimination protections for transgender Bay Staters.
