ACLU-TN Goes to the Movies


Loving and committed same-sex couples have secured the freedom to marry once and for all with the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, a consolidated case that challenged laws in Tennessee, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio that discriminated against same-sex couples and prohibited marriage.  ACLU is proud to be counsel on the Ohio and Kentucky petitions, and to have filed an amicus brief in the Tennessee case, Tanco v. Haslam.

All loving, committed couples in our state now have the right to marry.

To help facilitate the process for these couples, ACLU-TN has prepared “What to Do Before I Do: ACLU-TN’s Marriage Guide for LGBT Couples in Tennessee,” outlining what the Court’s decision in Obergefell means for Tennessee residents and how to navigate the requirements for getting married in Tennessee.

This victory for marriage equality is a momentous win for freedom, equality, inclusion and, above all, love.
