Sue Latta and Traci Ehlers

In 2013 Sue Latta and Traci Ehlers changed the course of marriage equality in Idaho when they, along with three other couples, filed and won a case that argued that Idaho´s marriage laws were in violation of the U.S. Constitution. ″When we first considered being a part of this lawsuit we were fairly convinced that there was no way that we would win, and that Idaho would be among the last states to grant marriage equality,″ they said. ″But when we were sitting in the courtroom listening to the arguments from both sides it became exceedingly clear that the state´s arguments against us were completely without merit…It was then that we began to believe that not only was there a chance that we could win, but that we were absolutely going to win.″ While Latta and Ehlers are obviously thrilled that they won, they know that there´s still plenty of work to do. ″The momentum of this fight has taken on a life of its own, and it´s not going to stop; we´re not going to stop, until everyone across the country has marriage equality.″ -GH
