April 27th State House Visit
On April 27, 2005 Gary and I delivered over two hundred info packs on same-sex marriage to each and every Massachusetts legislator. These packets contained a letter from us to the legislators, letters from both our mothers, our marriage certificate, wedding vows, and various articles covering our struggle to gain and retain the legal equality of civil marriage. During our visit we met with various Representatives and Senators. The highlight of the event was meeting with Speaker of the House Salvatore DiMasi.
The following photos were taken during that visit to the State House. Bay Windows' photographer Marilyn Humphries was invited into House Speaker Salvatore DiMasi's office to capture the historic meeting. It was a truly amazing day.
Gary and I have a lot of people to thank for April 27th. First and foremost we would like to thank Rep. John Keenan and his Chief of Staff Dominick Pangallo for making the trip possible and such a success, Speaker of the House Salvatore DiMasi for giving us his time and support, all the Senators and Representatives we met and their staff, and of course Marilyn Humphries who captured these wonderful moments. Enjoy!
