Written by scott on July 3rd, 2013

Equality FloridaMarriage equality advocates in Florida are looking for plaintiffs to challenge the state’s ban on gay marriage. On Top Magazine reports:

In an e-mail to supporters, Equality Florida, the state’s largest LGBT rights advocate, cited two recent Supreme Court rulings related to marriage equality in announcing its decision to move forward. “After consulting with state and national legal experts on the scope of the Supreme Court decision and the impact it may have for state constitutional bans, Equality Florida is reaching out to potential plaintiffs for a lawsuit in Florida,” the group wrote.

As a community, we need to pursue actions in all remaining 37 states to bring marriage equality to all our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters.

    My partner and I have been living in exile in Bangkok. We are presently filling out forms to return to the U.S. I live in Miami and we both plan on returning there together. I want my marriage recognized by my state. I would be willing to get involved in overturning prop 2 when we return.

  2. Timothy Fowler says:

    I am a married man in Florida and my rights in the United States have been violated.

  3. Erwin Goodwin says:

    My husband and I live in Florida. We were married last year in New Hampshire. He is a USPS employee and they go by state of residence for the purpose of determining familial benefits (including FMLA). Perhaps this would be useful as additional plaintiffs.
