Tori Sisson and Shante Wolfe camped in a blue and white tent outside the Montgomery County Courthouse during the early hours Monday, hugging and talking excitedly of getting married soon.
Despite an 11th-hour move from the state’s chief justice ordering judges to refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, Sisson and Wolfe hoped to be the first in Alabama to get one Monday morning. A federal judge’s order overturning the state’s ban on gay marriage will go into effect, making Alabama the 37th state to allow gays and lesbians to wed. And the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday morning denied the state attorney general’s request to extend a hold on the order overturning the ban, paving the way for marriages to start.
“It’s about time,” Wolfe, 21, said of gay marriage being allowed in the Deep South state.
