Saturday, Oct. 10, is Marriage Equality Day in Carrboro!
The Town Council of Carrboro, North Carolina (then known as the Board of Aldermen) voted unanimously in 2014 to recognize October 10th each year as “Marriage Equality Day.”
On October 10, 2014, one day shy of the 20th anniversary of the implementation of Carrboro’s Domestic Partnership Registry, equal rights advocates were able to declare victory over the repeal of North Carolina’s Amendment One when Federal Judge Max Cogburn agreed that the ruling in favor of the freedom to marry in the 4th Circuit applies to North Carolina’s Amendment One.
Upon announcement of Judge Cogburn’s order, same-sex couples, and advocates for marriage equality in North Carolina, rejoiced and the Town of Carrboro celebrated alongside by victoriously hoisting the rainbow flags at Town Hall.
