First Gay Couple Marries in D.C.

Congratulations Sinjoyla Townsend and Angelisa Young: You are the first gay couple to marry in Washington, D.C. After being together for 12 years, the couple was the first in line to apply for a marriage license in Washington last week and became the first to actually marry on Tuesday, the first day that marriage for gays became legal in D.C. Townsend and Young were one of 100 couples that applied for licenses. Five other states (Vermont, Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire) also allow gay marriage.
