OKLAHOMA CITY — A group of about 85 attorneys from across Oklahoma are joining a coalition in support of same-sex marriage in the state and the country.
One of the attorneys is Democratic state Rep. Emily Virgin of Norman who says she’s joining the coalition because she believes marriage equality is “a matter of fairness under the law.”
A federal judge in Oklahoma ruled earlier this year that Oklahoma’s voter-approved same-sex marriage ban was unconstitutional, saying it excluded one class of citizens from a constitutional right.
Oklahoma’s constitutional ban on gay marriage was approved by more than 75 percent of Oklahoma voters in 2004.
