Equality v. Toaster Oven: Registering for Equality

Jo-Ann and Mary-Jo

"We are in the early stages of talking menus and venues. The only decision we've agreed on so far is that we do not need another toaster oven. We have decided there would be no better gift than a donation to Lambda Legal, a cause dear to our hearts."

— Mary Jo Kennedy and Jo-Ann Shain

Like so many couples, Mary Jo and Jo-Ann have waited years to get married in their home state. On July 24, 2011 Mary Jo and Jo-Ann will be in line at City Hall to receive a New York marriage license and finally get married.

As one of the plaintiff couples in Lambda Legal's marriage equality case in New York (Hernandez v. Robles), Mary Jo and Jo-Ann know first hand the years of work, energy and cooperation that are necessary for our movement to succeed. Lambda Legal is proud of the role we could play to help couples like Mary Jo and Jo-Ann celebrate their commitment — not just in New York, but around the country through our relationship recognition work.

By making a gift in honor of a couple or registering your wedding with Lambda Legal, you are making an investment in equality. Your gifts literally make history, but more importantly, they change the lives of people all around the country.
