Kalamazoo Gay and Lesbian Resource Center applauds the Supreme Court

by

KALAMAZOO (WKZO) -- The US Supreme Court on Wednesday struck down the Defense of Marriage Act. In a five to four ruling, the majority of the court found DOMA "unconstitutional as a deprivation of the equal liberty of persons that is protected by the Fifth Amendment."

Zachary Bauer, with the Kalamazoo Gay and Lesbian Resource Center, says this means gay couples who marry in states where it's legal will now have their marriages recognized by the federal government, allowing them benefits they were previously denied. He applauded the Supreme Court for what he called it's brave decision.

Now, Bauer says work must begin to overturn Michigan's voter approved law against same sex marriage.
