Same-sex Couples Hope for End to Marriage Ban

Release Date

Tampa, Florida -- Some say this could be history in the making. That's after a Florida judge's decision to legalize same-sex marriage in Key West has the LGBT community in the Tampa Bay area and across the state celebrating.

Hundreds of same sex couples had hoped they could go to the Keys to file for a marriage license as early as Tuesday, but that's not possible now that Attorney General Pam Bondi appealed Thursday's ruling. Some say it's not a setback though but, instead, a huge step in the fight to legalize gay marriage.
