LGBTQ Nation reports:
Gildas Dousset filed an appeal in state court Wednesday, which alleges Florida’s laws barring recognition of valid out-of-state marriages of same-sex couples are unconstitutional. Dousset is a student at Florida Atlantic University. He and his spouse legally married in Massachusetts in 2013. Dousset applied for in-state tuition as the spouse of a long-time Florida resident, but says he was turned down because the school refused to recognize his marriage. The National Center for Lesbian Rights is handling Dousset’s case. Doussett said in a statement, “I would like my marriage to be recognized just as other students’ marriages are.”
It’s a great reminder of just how painful and debilitating these bans can be, and how the damage can show up in all kinds of unexpected ways.
