Got this message on facebook last night:
So Laura Phillips is going to be at the Washington County courthouse to marry people. Arkansas can legally marry same sex couples now (although for how long this will last is unsure), and she wants to make sure that someone is there to help people complete the legal process while it remains available. She isn’t charging anything, and we plan on having photographers on site for folks that want it.
She’s there right now in a rainbow dress.
Laura Phillips is the woman who married the first same sex couple in Eureka Springs. She is also on the Board of Directors of Center for Equality in Northwest Arkansas. Historically she has also been Will Phillips’s mom (the kid who didn’t stand up for the pledge). They are still at Washington county courthouse doing the signing of the marriage certificates so that we can get as many issues and filed before the stay happens.
If you are in a same-sex relationship and want to get married, get down there and make sure you get in before the GOP in Arkansas starts showing you how much they love the sinner by fruitlessly extending your state of inequality for a masturbatory appeal. And spread the word!
EDIT: Carroll county (where Eureka Springs is) has officially issued a stay. Waiting on word if a stay is issued for the state. Will let you know when I hear.
EDIT 2: No state-wide stay as of yet.
