Ellen and Shelly have been together for 40 years, They had a Civil Union in Vermont in 2000, became Registered Domestic Partners in California in 2002, had a Newsom Marriage during the "Winter of Love" in San Francisco in 2004, and were either the first or second same-sex couple to legally marry in California in 2008 (depending on whom you ask)! They have been gay rights activists since 1983 when they lobbied their city council to pass the Davis Civil Rights Ordinance which eliminated intentional discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation; this was one of the first such laws in the country. They organized Gay Pride Day in Yolo County for 10 years, have organized Marriage Equality events for the past 12 years, and are constantly amazed and empowered by the growth of equality for LGBTIQ people. It's almost impossible to believe how far our movement has come since they first met in 1973!
