Welcome to the GayRites.NET Community

We have long been fans of David Kirk and Randy Stopher, the Founding Fathers of GayRites.NET. We developed a friendship quite quickly not long after GayRites launched, and chose a path of collaboration over competition, looking forward to the day that we could celebrate marriage equality together.

Though as of October 30, 2014 we’re not yet celebrating marriage equality in all 50 states, David and Randy have decided that GayRites.NET has served its purpose, 10.25 years after launching in July 2004. There are now many professional websites that support marriage equality and the weddings that ensue. So their “labor of love” transitions into the history books as an important and memorable piece of the fight for marriage equality.  

If you were looking for them, but found us instead, we hope that you’ll take a look around to see if you can find what you are looking for here.
