Celebrating That #LoveIsTheLaw With EQFL Members Nick & Kurt
Nick & Kurt Celebrate 25 Years Together Recreating Their Equality March Photo!
The second anniversary of the United States Supreme Court's ruling affirming the freedom to marry is this Monday, June 26, 2017. We are so excited to start off the weekend celebrating the historic marriage victory and that #LoveIsTheLaw by highlighting this beautiful story from Tampa Equality Florida members, Nick Cardello and Kurt English!
The couple recently celebrated their 25th Anniversary by attending The Equality March for Unity & Pride in DC. Little did they know, their story was about to go viral! While the couple attended the march, they recreated a photo they took at the 1993 March on Washington -- and the internet went crazy for them!
"As Equality Florida members, we were glad we were able to represent a the Equality March. We have been amazed at the incredible response to our pictures and realize our community needs more images of longterm couples. We are surrounded by couples who have been together longer than us but that isn't what usually grabs the media spotlight. Older same sex couples aren't spotlighted in TV shows or movies. We are glad a moment of affection love and pride has reached so many. We hope everyone who smiled, or reposted the picture will join groups like Equality Florida in their communities and help make a difference." - Nick Cardello
Nick and Kurt were legally married in Boston in 2008 and decided to to get married again in Florida, their home, when the freedom to marry was secured in 2015.
It's safe to say, the internet is IN LOVE with Nick & Kurt -- and so are we! Happy Anniversary, Nick & Kurt!
