Jay Lassiter's voice choked with emotion when he was told of the Supreme Court's 5-4 decision declaring same-sex marriage a constitutional right. Lassiter, a longtime marriage equality advocate, said the decision in Obergefell v. Hodges was something the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community should "accept with grace, gratitude and tolerance" toward those who long opposed... "If we can give President Obama the space and time to evolve on this issue, if we can give our parents and families time, we can give it to those who feel aggrieved or harmed by this decision the same time," he said. Diane Marini, a Collingswood resident who was among the plaintiffs that first sued for the right to marry in New Jersey, noted the significance of the date, June 26: "The irony and the interesting thing few people will realize is that it was... Her partner, Marilyn Maneely, who also was a plaintiff in the 2002 lawsuit, died in 2005 from ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease). Marini noted how many times she's used the word "bittersweet" when discussing the march toward marriage equality, and how attitudes toward same-sex marriages have changed over the past decade. New Jersey law began recognizing same-sex marriage in 2013, becoming the 14th state to do so. "I couldn't get a marriage certificate, but I was on (Maneely's) death certificate," Marini said. Both Lassiter, 43, and Marini, 62, reflected on the struggles of the LGBT community for acceptance, and how marriage was something far from the minds of many of their peers for a long time. "It was easier for my generation to deliver on marriage equality, because so much of the fight was based on the martyrdom of the AIDS crisis," said Lassiter, who has been HIV-positive for 24 years. A generation ago, Lassiter noted, "The churches were hostile, the government was hostile, even our Democratic president was passing the Defense of Marriage Act," he said, referring to President Bill Clinton's 1996 signing of a federal law defining... "We spent a generation undoing what was done to them," Lassiter said. "I'm glad that (Clinton) evolved and the country evolved, but there were still a lot of casualties in this fight. When Marini and Maneely began their fight, Marini recalled, few people — gay or straight — understood why marriage mattered to them. ' It wasn't something people even thought about doing," she said.
