As suggested by Bri Hermanson, the first in my series of "Admirable Couples" is Thea Spyer and Edie Windsor, in honor of the Same Sex Marriage bill being passed.
Edith "Edie" Windsor, who shared her life with her late spouse, Thea Spyer, for 44 years, files a lawsuit against the federal government for refusing to recognize their marriage. The lawsuit challenges the constitutionality of the "Defense of Marriage Act" (DOMA), a federal statute that defines marriage for all federal purposes as a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife. Windsor and Spyer were married in Canada in 2007, and were considered married by their home state of New York. [ACLU Youtube Video]
Tonight is a night for dancing in the streets! In honor of this historic moment, send me a picture of a couple you admire - whether gay or straight, this is something we should all be proud of - and I would be happy to draw a portrait to celebrate on my site!
