Same sex couples can marry nationwide


A divided Supreme court ruled same sex couples can now marry nationwide, a historic victory for LGBTQ community.

Luis Galindo Jr. and his husband were the first same sex couple married in Yuma county.  Galindo Jr. says, “It’s here now, enjoy your life, be who are you.”

The first couple married in Yuma County says its victorious for the LGBT community.

Galindo Jr. says since getting married in Yuma County, he has seen nothing but an outpouring of love and support for him and his husband.

The Supreme Court decision could settle one of the major civil rights fights of this era.

Galindo Jr. says, “Keep your head up, the possible. is possible, your dreams will come true.”

PFLAG Yuma is happy about the decision, but still feels there is work to be done.

PFLAG President Jody Michaud says in some states people can be fired from their job or evicted from their home for being gay.

Michaud says, “Some states have discrimination and those are the laws that need to be changed. Love is love and people are people and it doesn’t matter if they’re lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.”

Galindo Jr. says he thinks even though people have mixed emotions about it, they will learn to accept this decision.

It’s a day for celebration across the nation and right here in Yuma county, as the country comes together with one idea that love always wins.
