Miner Lauds Supreme Court Decision on Marriage Equality

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Mayor Stephanie A. Miner today praised the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing marriage equality across the United States.

“Love has won. The Supreme Court has shown that while progress takes patience, equality is inevitable. This decision shows that all Americans, regardless of who they love, are equal under the laws of our country and no government can stand in the way of two people being united in marriage. Harvey Milk once said hope will never be silent; today, we heard hope scream louder than ever before.

Obama SCOTUS
President Obama addresses the nation regarding Supreme Court’s decision regarding Same-Sex Marriage.

“It is only appropriate that this decision falls on the anniversary of two other landmark cases extending equality towards all: Lawrence v. Texas and Windsor v. United States were both decided on June 26 in 2003 and in 2013, respectively. Today will forever be a day celebrated in our nation’s history as one where our nation’s highest ideals of liberty, justice, and equality for all prevailed.”

Mayor Miner has a long history of advocating for LGBT rights. In 2014, Mayor Miner called on the New York State Senate to pass GENDA. In 2013, she signed a local ordinance modeled on the statewide GENDA bill into law to protect transgender Syracusans. Mayor Miner is also a part of the Mayors for the Freedom to Marry coalition. She has hosted the LGBT community at City Hall annually for a Pride celebration. She was the first political candidate to march in the Syracuse Pride Parade in 2009 and also served as the Grand Marshal in 2010.
