This week a new statewide public education campaign was launched called Wyoming unites for marriage. The idea is to get support for same sex couples. Earlier this year a lawsuit was filed to try and make same sex marriage legal in Wyoming. Jeran Artery of the group Wyoming Equality tells Bob Beck that the lawsuit seems like the quickest way to get equality.
The U.S. Supreme Court decision overturning the Defense of Marriage Act will not change state laws regarding whether gay couples can marry. But gay rights activists say they hope the ruling will be an important step toward marriage equality in Wyoming.
Jeran Artery with the group Wyoming Equality says after today’s decision, his group is considering several options to try to get gay marriage legalized here.
