Marriage Equality Anniversary
Travis County June 26 Marriage Equality Anniversary
Monday, June 26th is the eighth anniversary of Marriage Equality. On June 26, 2015 the Supreme Court determined that the Constitution recognizes a national right to same-sex marriage.
In February 2015 the Travis County Clerk’s office issued the first marriage license to a same-sex couple in Texas. Four months later, on the day of the Obergefell v Hodges ruling, our office issued 312 formal marriage licenses and 113 informal marriage licenses to different and same-sex couples. To celebrate this historic date, the County Clerk’s office will be holding free wedding ceremonies conducted by Judge Nicholas Chu at the 5501 Airport Blvd office from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
If you would like to get married during the County Clerk’s Marriage Equality Anniversary Celebration on June 26th, 2023, you will need to follow the instructions below to schedule an appointment.
Couples can expect a backdrop for the ceremonies and for pictures, along with light refreshments.
The Travis County Clerk’s office looks forward to celebrating the LGBTQ+ community. County Clerk Limon-Mercado believes it is important to uplift and express solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community, especially as they face extreme attacks from the Texas State Legislature.
