SALUTING Diane Marini.  Diane Marini has been fighting for the freedom to marry in New Jersey since 2002. She and her late partner, Marilyn Maneely, were part of Lambda Legal's first marriage case in New Jersey -- which resulted in a 2006 unanimous ruling from the New Jersey Supreme Court ordering that same-sex couples must be provided all the benefits and responsibilities of marriage. The Court left devising a remedy to the New Jersey Legislature, which unfortunately chose to enact civil unions instead of marriage.  Diane and Marilyn had been together for 14 years, and despite all their devotion and hard work, they were still strangers in the eyes of the law when Marilyn tragically passed away in the fall of 2005. Diane remains committed to fighting for marriage equality by telling her story to help change hearts and minds.

Also featuring special remarks from Lambda Legal's Executive Director, Kevin Cathcart.
