On Wednesday (6-26-13), the US Supreme Court struck down a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act... a section that had denied certain federal benefits to same sex couples. The court said that language unconstitutionally discriminated against gays and lesbians. And the decision prompted strong reactions closer to home. Aspen Public Radio’s Rebecca Kruth reports.  

Aspen’s gay community is celebrating after yesterday’s landmark Supreme Court ruling.

Todd Chamberlin is on the board of directors for Aspen Out, a group that provides support and services to gays and lesbians.
