Married, Yet Denied a Greencard

April may be over, but we wanted to share one more story relating to the importance of marriage equality for LGBT older adults.  These stories are also part of our SAGE Story series. Do you have a story you would like to share? Tell us today!

Even though Matilde and Bronwyn are legally married in New York State and Bronwyn is a U.S. Citizen, Matilde is not recognized as such by marriage and must obtain a visa in order stay in the country. Their plight is a common one for LGBT couples - married or not. Watch as they tell their story.
