Coming up Saturday, June 8. Judy Richard and Karin Bogliolo will be participating.
We are please to offer this unique opportunity to ask questions, listen, and learn from the pioneer of the movement for same-sex binational couples and marriage equality. Anthony “Tony” Sullivan (Australia) married his husband, Richard Adams (U.S., in Colorado in April of 1975. But when, after the wedding, they submitted a “green card” petition to the United States Immigration and Naturalization Service, as the agency was then known, they received this official reply: “You have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots.” A ten year legal battle ensued in both federal court and in the Court of Public Opinion. Tony will be joined on the Roundtable by The DOMA Project co-founder, immigration attorney, Lavi Soloway, and 9 other lesbian and gay binational couples who will freely share in the discussion to also relate their immigration experiences.
