A Civil and Human Right

Marriage is a civil and human right. The American public must come to know what gay marriage actually looks like such that they come to fear it less. What is more, as New York University professor Patrick J. Egan, explains, “opposition to same-sex marriage shoots up a bit in the month or two or three after a big court decision” in favor of gay marriage. However, over time and with further exposure, “people’s experience with the policy changes their attitudes.” Photographing couples and families from around the United States as part of States of Union, and then exhibiting the photographs will help promote this adjustment as well as show the general public whom they are voting against, in order to make relationship recognition a reality.
