Series 4 Same-Sex Marriage Correspondence 2004-2009

Separated Material

The photographic book, We Do, A Celebration of Gay and Lesbian Marriage, c2004, was transferred to the library catalog.

Historical Note

Mayor Newsom declared same-sex marriage legal on Feb. 11, 2004. Nearly 4000 licenses were issued by Assessor-Recorder Mabel Teng until March 11, 2004, when the California Supreme Court halted the marriages. On Aug 12, 2004, the Court invalidated the unions. However, the same court overturned the state's ban on gay marriage on May 15, 2008, making California only the second state (after Massachusetts) to allow same-sex marriages. That November, voters passed Proposition 8, a state constitutional amendment reinstating the ban. Same-sex marriage advocates sued the state of California. On June 26, 2013, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of a lower court's ruling to strike down the ban, legalizing same-sex marriages. Two days later, the Appeals Court announced that same-sex marriages could resume.

Scope and Contents

Contains correspondence received by the Mayor following his declaration of legal marriages between same-sex couples in 2004, and following the California Supreme Court ruling on May 15, 2008, overturning the state's ban on gay marriage (of Aug. 12, 2004). The 2008 correspondence is largely E-mails congratulating the mayor. A few E-mails on other topics are included within the 2008 messages.

Arrangement

Organized chronologically by year.

Physical Characteristics and Technical Requirements

Includes two computer discs (CDs).
