Fort Worth Star-Telegram Publishes First Same-Sex Marriage Announcement

David Mack Henderson, president and co-founder of the LGBT advocacy group Fairness Fort Worth, shares the news that the Fort Worth Star-Telegram has published it’s FIRST same-sex marriage announcement!

Congratulations to Joshua Rogers and David Hernandez!

I was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, and pleasantly surprised at the progress being made in my hometown.

After weeks of discussions with the Star-Telegram, Fairness Forth Worth shared that the paper would begin accepting same-sex announcements beginning March 8th.  “To qualify for publication in our Sunday Life
section, under the Wedding heading, same-sex wedding ceremonies must be
performed in states where same-sex marriages are legally recognized.”

In related news out of Fort Worth, the county clerk there recently announced that should the 5th Circuit Court rule the ban on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional, the office will comply with the ruling and begin issuing marriage licenses should there not be a stay on the ruling.

Quite a different response from what’s happening in Alabama, no?
