Just days ago we were celebrating the historic decision from the U.S. Supreme Court that made marriage equality the law of the land.

Unfortunately, some county clerks in Kentucky didn't get the message. Citing their religious beliefs, some are refusing to issue marriage licenses to any couple in an effort to avoid having to grant them to loving, same-sex couples.

Have you or anyone you know been denied a license? Tell us your story. We have filed one lawsuit in Rowan County and are prepared to file additional suits against any clerk that refuses to do his or her job. When our laws are updated or changed, government officials have a duty and a responsibility to impartially administer those laws.

Without anti-discrimination protections for the vast majority of LGBT Kentuckians, the backlash may not end with marriage license refusals. The majority of Kentuckians can still be fired from their jobs, evicted from their homes, and denied service in restaurants and shops simply for being who they are. If you've been treated unfairly, we want to hear from you too.

Gay and lesbian people are our friends, neighbors, family and co-workers. When it comes to being able to earn a living or being served by a business or government office, they should be treated like anyone else and not be discriminated against. Your stories help us move the fight for Fairness in the Commonwealth forward.
