What an exciting day in the City of Orlando! Equality Florida's State Field Director, Joe Saunders and I just left Orlando City Hall where dozens of commited lesbian and gay couples lined up to be among the first to register as domestic partners in the city's newly minted domestic partner registry. Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer and the Orlando City Commision last month voted unanimously to create Central Florida's first domestic partnership registry. The registry will provide critical protections for these couples, including the right to hospital visitation, the right to make medical descisions and the right to participate in a partners childrens education. The passage of the registry is the result of months of work by Equality Florida staff, the Orlando Anti-Discrimination Ordinance Committee and countless other volunteers, and it's a landmark moment for Central Florida and our state. The first couple to register was openly gay City Commisioner Patty Sheehan and her partner. Mayor Dyer was on hand to administer the first round of registrations and congratulate the happy couples. Check out the video of Mayor Dyer registering Commisioner Sheehan and her partner and the photos of the happy couples. 

Couples who would like to register or are looking for more information on the registry can visit the registry page at the City of Orlando here.

Today the City of Orlando truely lived up to it's name; "the city beautiful". Onward to Orange County, and to full equality for all of the residents of Florida!

-Michael Farmer, State Field Coordinator
