Hoosiers Unite for Marriage, a statewide group that worked to end Indiana’s ban on same-sex marriage, is inviting all “Hoosiers who support marriage equality for all loving, committed couples” to a party.
The group is hosting a Decision Day event Wednesday night to celebrate today’s ruling that the ban is unconstitutional.
It is 6 p.m. at North United Methodist Church, 3808 N. Meridian St., Indianapolis.
Dozens of couples lined up at the Marion County clerk’s office in Indianapolis Wednesday to get married after federal Judge Richard Young struck down the state’s gay marriage ban.
The president of Indiana Equality Action and his partner of 16 years, 40-year-old Robert Owens, were wed Wednesday by Marion County Clerk Beth White.
Sutton says they decided to marry quickly because of concerns that an appeals court would overturn Young’s ruling. The state plans to appeal and seek a stay.
