Trailblazer in Marriage Equality Fight Passes

07/07/2022

LGBTQIA people have lost an ally this week in the shape of marriage equality trailblazer Clela Rorex, who has passed on at the age of seventy eight.  Ms Rorex was for a time a County Clerk in Boulder, Colarado, and when a gay couple presented to her to ask for a marriage license, she sought legal advice and decided that there was no clause in the law that prevented her from issuing the due documentation.  Rorex issued six marriage licenses to samesex couples before the intervention of the Attorney General to stop her.  Despite receiving hate male from homophobes, Rorex continued to advocate for peace and justice throughout her life.  In later years she worked for the Native American Rights Fund and continued to speak out in favour of LGBTQIA equality.  Clela Rorex was an unsung but significant hero in the long struggle for LGBT+ legal equality.
