Marriage equality 10th anniversary celebration to be held in Arlington

Arlington’s Human Rights Commission will mark a decade of marriage equality in Massachusetts with a celebration from 2 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Whittemore-Robbins House, 670R Massachusetts Ave.

The event will include a video from May 17, 2004, the first day same-sex marriage licenses were issued in Massachusetts, as well as a talk by Jane Guy and Gail Goodearl, who were among the first same-sex couples to obtain licenses at Arlington Town Hall.

It will also feature a presentation by David Wilson, who with his husband, Rob Compton, were among the seven same-sex couples who sued Massachusetts for the right to marriage equality.

Light refreshments will be served as part of the celebration, which is free.

The anniversary will also be marked on May 18 by the Episcopal Church of Our Saviour, at 21 Marathon St. in East Arlington, during its 10 a.m. worship service, with a reception to follow at 11:15 a.m.
