Statement from Mayor Steve Pougnet Regarding U.S. Supreme Court’s Ruling on DOMA and Proposition 8
“The Supreme Court’s historic action today overturning DOMA and dismissing the appeal of California’s Proposition 8, clearing the way for same-sex marriage in our state is a huge victory for the LGBT community. This is about equal rights and I am gratified that the Court has recognized that we are all the same. My husband Christopher and I look forward to same-sex weddings commencing again in the state of California – and rest assured the City of Palm Springs will continue to be a destination committed to celebrating the institution of marriage, both heterosexual and same-sex.”
