Kay Mathews and Wendy Churitch renewed their vows in front of the Dallas Records Building today at noon to mark Freedom to Marry Day. They were legally married in Iowa last August. Both are grandmothers.

Mathews said, “Today is not about us.” She said it was about the more than 1,200 rights offered to couples whose marriages are recognized by government.

He said, “We stand with you on the side of rights” and “Religions of hate miss the point.”
