The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the same-sex marriage ban in Nevada on Tuesday. Nevada became part of the 32 states to legalize gay marriage.
Clark County will begin accepting marriage applications from same-sex couples today, Oct. 8, at 2 p.m., one day after a federal appeals court declared gay marriage legal in Nevada.
“This is a historic day for Las Vegas and the great state of Nevada. As the “Wedding Capital of the World” and one of the top destinations for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender visitors, Las Vegas welcomes LGBT couples wishing to legally recognize their relationship. There is simply no better destination to host a fabulous wedding followed by a one-of-a-kind honeymoon.”
