Councilmember Glass Attends Signing of Respect for Marriage Act

Council President Evan Glass rode the Metro to the White House Tuesday to witness firsthand President Joe Biden signing the Respect for Marriage Act into law.

The first openly gay member of the county council tweeted, “Love wins on Tuesday.”

The law grants federal protections to same-sex and interracial couples. It does not force states to approve marriage licenses to same sex couples. It does consider a couple to be married in any state if they were legally married in a state that allows same sex marriages.

Also witnessing the event was Maryland Del. Bonnie Cullison.
