Same-Sex Marriage Timeline

California's History

Each area of the United States has a different relationship with their citizens who identify as a sexual or gender minority.  The goal of this portion of our Knowledge Community (KC) would be to collect as much of that history from as many of our states and local areas as possible.

If you would like to contribute information from your state or area, please email us at

PLEASE REMEMBER:  If you are submitting items to be included in the KC, it is your responsibility to ensure links work, images documents are correctly attributed and all permissions have been granted.
