Gay Couple Still Waiting To Get Married After 61 Years

New York residents Richard Adrian Dorr and John Mace have been together for 61 years but still cannot get married.

In the video, the couple reveal they met at the Juilliard School of Music in 1948 and have been together since 1950. Both are voice teachers who live and work in Manhattan.
“We’re New Yorkers and after 61 years of togetherness, we feel we have a right to be married in New York.”

“They are still obviously so deeply in love after 61 years and yet after all those years of commitment, being there for one another through the ups and downs of life, they are still being denied the one thing they want most – the freedom to marry in New York. It is time to change that. After 61 years together, haven’t they waited long enough?”
