GAY MARRIAGE-10 YEARS LATER


Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Thursday, May 15, 2014 1:17 PM EDT
BOSTON


Supporters and activists routinely ask gay couples to meet with reluctant lawmakers to put a human face on the issue of same-sex marriage. They file lawsuits. They use unexpected allies — in some cases, churches — to spread their message.

It's a strategy that has shown results, most recently this week in Idaho. And it was one that was first tried in Massachusetts, where 10 years ago Saturday, gay couples became the first in the nation to legally tie the knot.

Marc Solomon is the national campaign director for Freedom to Marry and helped lead the campaign in Massachusetts. He says "we've really used a spirit of relentlessness."

Seventeen states and the District of Columbia have legalized gay marriage since 2004. But opposition remains stiff in many places.
