Gays to seek marriage licenses today to test ban
May 14 - After seven years of living together, Sharla Egan and Denise Murphy intend to marry Saturday in a ceremony at Calamus Resort in Phoenix.

But first, the Mesa pair - and about 50 other gay and lesbian couples - are showing up at court and city offices around the state today to obtain marriage licenses in a massive test of the state's laws, enacted in 1996, banning same-sex marriage.

Many of the couples will board buses and stop at about 10 different licenseissuing offices where they will take turns asking for application forms.

"I am expecting to be turned away," Egan said Thursday, but that won't stop her and Murphy from their Saturday wedding.

1. This is an outrage!
Next thing you know, even I'll be gay because of this law! Don't they know this law will make everyone gay?!?
