This year marked the 10th annual Witness for Love event held every Valentines day to remind Virginians about the unequal treatment LGBTQ couples face in the eyes of the law.
Sadly, several of the events this year had to be canceled because of snow storms closing roads and court houses. But tomorrow you’ll have another chance to witness the love here in VA at the Hanover County Courthouse at 7507 Library Drive in Hanover.
“The courts are doing important work… The lawyers do the law, but we have to inspire them, and that’s what we’re doing,” said event organizer and President of People of Faith for Equality in Virginia Rev. Dr. Robin H. Gorsline back in February in front of the John Marshall Court house here in Richmond.
“Even when we have this wonderful victory, it’s not done yet,” said Gorsline. “We have to then make sure Virginia is ready for this, for equality, and that means changing a lot of hearts and minds.”
Be at the Hanover County Court House 1 PM Thursday 5/1 and help support the fight for equality.
