Freedom to Marry passed the Supreme Court!
"No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves. Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right.
The judgment of the Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit is Reversed.
It is so ordered." - Justice Anthony Kennedy, June 26, 2015

WelcomeWe are Tacoma Lesbian Concern (TLC). TLC is a non-profit organization which has been in existence since the 1970's. We are a group of South Puget Sound lesbian women organized for a threefold purpose: 1) to provide opportunities for socializing, 2) to arrange supportive networking, and 3) to furnish political education and awareness. To meet these goals we schedule, support and attend a wide variety of activities, work with other groups for common goals, and have a great time doing it! This web site is offered to hook you up with current events, TLC membership, and other organizations that may interest you.
Members receive a monthly newsletter, an opportunity to participate in our annual retreat, and a free museum pass. For more information about TLC, email firstname.lastname@example.org. Go to the calendar to find currently scheduled events and be our guest.
