On Friday the Supreme Court once and for all affirmed same-sex marriage as a constitutional right. States may not

Dallas County Clerk John Warren made headlines weeks ago by saying he’ll issue marriage licenses immediately upon today’s decision, while Republican clerks in other Texas counties said they’d wait until an undetermined time for state-issued forms.
“While dozens of states recognize marriage equality, Texas has gone out of its way to make our gay and lesbian neighbors second-class citizens – that ends today,” said Dallas County Democratic Party Chair Darlene Ewing. “Let Republican elected officials dig their heels in and show voters which century they want to live in. We choose progress and equality,” she said.

"Working with Dallas County Democratic Party volunteers, staff, and elected officials to improve the lives of Texans has been one of the highlights of my life," said Taylor Holden. "Thank you all for working alongside me and teaching me more about community organizing than I could have imagined. You made Dallas home."
