Dawn Ramos + Laurie Ovesen

Dawn Ramos (Deaf) and Laurie Ovesen (Hearing) met in Sacramento, California 14 years ago.  Dawn was Laurie’s ASL teacher and they began dating after the semester ended.  They fell in love and in 1998, the lovebirds tied the knot in Loomis, California. Dawn took on Laurie’s last name and they began a family together a few months after their wedding.  The couple have two children, Jack, age 13, and Meg, age 10, and run a canine boarding and daycare business in Maple Valley, Washington. 

Fairness & Equality Won

FAIRNESS & EQUALITY have won out over FEAR & PREJUDICE.

For the first time, VOTERS have drawn a line in the sand and said to the nation: ALL AMERICANS should have the FUNDAMENTAL FREEDOM to marry the person they love.

Election Results: Marriage Equality Wins!

From the American Foundation for Equal Rights: This election brought us an amazing victory. It’s the best outcome we could possibly have hoped for. Until now, our opponents have kept pointing out that they’ve won every popular vote on marriage. But not anymore. With sixteen national surveys showing a majority of Americans support the freedom to marry, their winning streak is at an end. Captioned video.

41 More States to Go!

As of November 7, 2012, nine states plus the District of Columbia have passed marriage equality laws:

1. Massachusetts – May 17, 2004

2. Connecticut – November 12, 2008

"It is about love. Love for all people. Love for humanity. Love for justice and equality for all. Love for basic human rights. Love for civil rights for all people. Thank you Maryland, Maine, Minnesota and Washington and, of course, thank you America for re-electing Obama."
--MJ Bienvenu

Victory in All Four States!

Victory in all four states! Love triumphed bigotry. Thank you allies, those who made monetary contributions and worked tirelessly on the state campaigns, those who spent time educating and informing others why marriage equality and LGBT civil rights matter and of course, those of you who voted yesterday.  We’re four steps closer to marriage equality for all Americans.

Marriage News Watch (Captioned)

An anti-gay ad in Washington is re-using discredited misinformation from other states. We’ll have a side-by-side comparison. New polling shows us with a healthy lead in several states, but some of the numbers don’t quite add up. And new protections from the Obama administration could save LGBT couples from forced deportation. — American Foundation for Equal Rights
