Women in Oklahoma lawsuit to allow gay marriage will be in OKC on Saturday

Mary Bishop, Sharon Baldwin, Sue Barton and Gay Phillips, all of Tulsa, sued the state and federal governments for the right to marry and for recognition of the marriages of same-gender couples nearly a decade ago.

“It is expected that matters surrounding the state’s same-sex constitutional marriage ban will begin to move very quickly in the coming months,” Myers said in a media statement. The couples will be available for interviews during the event.

“That said, OKC Pride wants to do everything we can to create as much awareness as possible, and to aid in putting these four amazing civil rights pioneers out front at every opportunity. … We want everyone to be up to date on the very latest information surrounding this ground-breaking case.”

The four also were invited to be this year’s marshals in the 2014 Pride Parade.
