Supreme Court Gay Marriage Obergefell

Supreme Court Gay Marriage Obergefell

In this March 6, 2015, photo, Jim Obergefell speaks to a member of the media after joining the Human Rights Campaign as they deliver what they say are 207,551 copies of the “People’s Brief” that calls for full nationwide marriage equality, to the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington. Obergefell is the named plaintiff in Obergefell v. Hodges, a marriage equality case set to be heard by the U.S. Supreme Court on April 28th. Obergefell hadn’t thought about being one of the most visible figures in the marriage-equality movement. He just wanted to marry the love of his life for 21 years. Obergefell remembers watching the news on TV with John Arthur after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the Defense of Marriage Act in 2013. "I just leaned over, hugged and kissed John, and said, 'Let’s get married'," he recalls. (AP Photo/Andrew Harnik)
