June marked a victory for gay marriage when the Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have a right to marry nationwide, in a historic decision that invalidates gay marriage bans in more than a dozen states. This was a huge victory for the LGBT community but not everyone is happy some people feel left out.
According to Scoop, One of those people is Michael Hughson who has been in a serious relationship with his dog Shady for over 4 years. Him and many other people have been sending letters and protesting outside Washington asking for the same freedom gays are receiving. Michael tells us he is only asking for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Supreme court later ruled as people you have to right to marry whom or whatever you love. Michael Hughson says “if love is love and everyone wants equality then everyone should have to right to marry anything and whatever they love”.
Michael Hughson plans to legally marry his dog Shady sometime in August.
