Ward Curtin, State Director for Freedom Nevada, issued the following statement today in response to licenses being issued for same-sex couples in the Nevada:
“Today is a day for the history books. The freedom to marry has come to Nevada, and soon across our great state, loving same-sex couples will at long last share in the respect and dignity only marriage can provide,” said Curtin.
“From this day forward, marriage equality will strengthen our families, strengthen our communities and make Nevada a better place to live and work.
We are forever grateful for the incredible legal team at Lambda Legal and the brave plaintiff couples who put their families front and center in this historic fight. Without their heroic efforts, today’s victory would not have been possible.”
