Last week (27 Dec.) New Hampshire Governor-Elect Maggie Hassan announced the details of her upcoming inaugural ceremony. Charlie Morgan, a chief warrant officer in the state’s National Guard, will open the ceremony by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. Morgan, and her wife, are two of the plaintiffs involved in a lawsuit against the Defense of Marriage Act.
‘Charlie Morgan is a national treasure and a treasure to her home state of New Hampshire,’ OutServe-SLDN executive director Allyson Robinson said in a statement. ‘We could not be happier that Governor-elect Hassan has chosen to honor her work and her fight for equality in this way.’
OutServe-SLDN is a non-profit advocacy organization that works with LGBT military members, veterans and their families.
