Chafee: State recognizes out-of-state same-sex marriages

May 14, 2012

PROVIDENCE – Monday was a day for gay and lesbian Rhode Islanders to whoop and cheer.

At several points during his announcement, Chafee made it clear that he wants his action to be one step toward allowing full gay marriage rights in Rhode Island.
