The month of June has certainly been an exciting one for the ongoing crusade towards marriage equality, both in Michigan and around the country. Even before last week’s Supreme Court decision was handed down, the LGBTQ community of Detroit was alive and vibrant, immersing themselves in the community to raise awareness for equal marriage rights in the Mitten State.
Being staunch advocates of gay marriage and second parent adoption issues, the Michigan attorneys at Nessel and Kessel Law are also at the forefront of this historic battle of civil and social rights. In addition to leading the way towards same-sex marriage rights with the DeBoer Rowse case and the Michigan Marriage Challenge, this legal team took to the streets to spread their message at local pride parades held throughout the Detroit area in June. At both the Ferndale Pride Parade and Motor City Pride Parade, lawyer Dana Nessel was a featured speaker where she discussed her case and challenging the state ban on same-sex marriage, through the example of April DeBoer and Jayne Rowse. (More information on the DeBoer Rowse case can be found here.)
With the winds of change blowing through the Supreme Court however, it is only a matter of time before the efforts of Nessel, and others in support of marriage equality, see their dream become a reality in every state. Should you or a loved one have an interest in exploring second parent adoption, same-sex marriage, or any other part of your rights as a member of the LGBTQ community, do no hesitate to reach out to a legal team that is fighting for your rights–not just talking about them.
