The first state to legalize gay marriage - Massachusetts, on May 17, 2004.
On October 4, 1972 Antonio Molina and Billie Ert were issued a marriage license by Sandra Kalinowski in Wharton, Texas and they were married the next day by Rev. Richard Vincent at the Harmony Wedding Chapel. Billie was trans and lived as a woman. The Rev. said, "We marry souls, not bodies. As far as I'm concerned, they're married in the eyes of god." While their marriage was annulled, it was an important step in the fight for equality.
