Local girls fight for their family in support of gay marriage
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- As the Supreme Court decides to take up cases on gay marriage bans in Kentucky, Three local girls take the internet by storm to fight for their family.
"I've always known that our family was truly special," said 18-year old, Kinsey Morrison.
Kinsey and her two sisters Jillian and Teagan do everything together.
"We go on vacation together we have family game nights together, family movie nights and genuinely just love being together," said Kinsey.
What makes their bond unbreakable, also sets them apart. Three sisters stand united as they humanize the issue of gay marriage.
"Emotionally we're already a family but legally we want to be one too," said Jillian Morrison, the couples middle daughter.
The girls took to the internet to share their story.
"Our moms who have been together for 23 years, engaged for 19, who have built a life together and raised three children together, they can't get married," said the couple's youngest daughter, Teagan Morrison.
But it's a family union that is not recognized by the law. Kentucky is one of 14 states that does not allow same sex marriages.
Kinsey said, "Our country promises liberty and justice for all I don't feel like currently we're living up to that."
So the sisters are advocating for the same rights for their family.
"Straight or gay or anywhere in between you can still be great parents," said Jillian.
"Families that have gay parents or lesbian parents are just the same as any other family and we should be treated the same," said Teagan.
They say this non-traditional family is based on the one family tradition that really matters.
"Love is what makes a family and really all that what makes a family and our family certainly has as much love if not more than most," said Kinsey.
