Green Party: National anti-discrimination legislation covering sexual orientation and identity is necessary to strengthen marriage equality.
Repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act
The Green Party and the Lavender Green Caucus celebrate this momentous day with LGBTQI communities across the United States. With the Supreme Court's historic decisions today striking down the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act and ruling that the California Prop 8 petitioners did not have legal standing to appeal, we come far closer to nationwide marriage equality than many of us have ever expected to see. Since our inception, the Green Party has supported the right of every couple to marry regardless of sexual orientation, and we commit to continue this fight until this is a reality in every state across the country. We haven't achieved equality until ALL people are equal, and not just those fortunate enough to live certain areas.
And we commit to continue the struggle because we understand that equality means more than marriage equality. The struggle continues, as we work to make full protections for our transgender siblings a reality. The struggle continues as we ensure that every LGBTQI person has enough food to eat, a roof over their heads, and the proper care for a healthy life. The struggle continues as we work to ensure the basic dignity and human rights that we all deserve.

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Green Party leaders called passage of national anti-discrimination legislation that covers sexual orientation and sexual identity a necessary step after recent court decisions allowing same-sex marriage, especially in the wake of laws in Indiana and Arkansas that uphold a "right" to discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender Americans.
The Green Party hails the Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage
"As we welcome the Court majority's recognition of the truth of marriage equality, we congratulate and thank the generations of LGBT activists whose years of struggle made this decision possible.
Greens nationwide have supported LGBT rights, including marriage equality, long before establishment politicians considered the position safe".
