Boulder Marriage Equality Glenda Russell and Clela Rorex talked about Boulder, Colorado’s, efforts for marriage equality and its ordinance prohibiting sexual orientation discrimination. In 1974, Boulder became the first city whose council voted on a discrimination ordinance prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation. In 1975, Boulder County Clerk Clela Rorex was the second in the United States to ever grant same-sex marriage licenses, prior to state laws being passed to prevent such issuance. Six same-sex marriage licenses were issued, with several of the couples exchanging vows.
