In Kentucky: The First lawsuit has been filed against the State's Gay Marriage ban

Folks are trying to change it up in South, when it comes to gay marriage. In Kentucky, a couple is challenging the state's gay marriage ban.

Gregory Bourke and Michael Deleon are fighting to be recognized and respected. They have been married for over 30 years and have children together. The couple are being represented by Louisville attorneys Shannon Fauver and Dawn Elliot, and earlier today, filed a lawsuit against the ban.

Gregory and Michael are claiming that ban denies their ability to fulfill their life goals and it robs them of  legal protections that are available to straight couples.

I am so excited to see this. It's good to see the South rise up for equality.
