South Enders Celebrate Marriage Equality Anniversary at Public Garden

Ellen Wade of Newton speaks at Thursday's celebration of marriage equality in Massachusetts at the Public Garden Thursday.

Dozens of local gay and lesbian couples gathered at the Boston Public Garden Thursday to celebrate the 9th anniversary of the law that gave them the right to marry in Massachusetts.

The celebration, put on in partnership between Gay & Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD), the Respect for Marriage Coalition and Mayor Thomas Menino, ended with a group photo at a location popular for wedding photography.

Michael Kelley and Ricardo Rodriguez of the South End were on hand Thursday. Kelley said that before marriage equality was in place, people referred to himself and Rodriguez as “friends, boyfriends, that friend, partner,” but that all changed when they were wed.

“That is exactly the power of marriage,” Kelley said.

“It’s been an extraordinary five years,” said Ellen Wade of Newton, who along with her wife, Maureen Brodoff, were one of the plaintiffs in the landmark case they won in 2003 that led to the adoption of marriage equality in the state. read more
