gender neutral marriage license

 

This took time but that's it, marriage licenses were modified in Florida to follow the legalization of marriage equality across all 50 states.

Florida’s Bureau of Vital Statistics and Florida Department of Health has provided all the clerks of the state with the new forms with gender-neutral fields.

Earlier this year, a federal court recognized the equal marriage ban as unconstitutional despite opposition led by Attorney General Pam Bondi. This opposition whose cost would amount to $500,000 they refuse to pay.

«It’s ludicrous. Quite frankly, the state vigorously litigated this. Now they’re saying, «We lost, but we don’t want to pay»,» Elizabeth White, a Jacksonville civil rights attorney, said.
