After DOMA: What it Means For You - LGBT Organizations Fact Sheet Series

In the wake of the US Supreme Court’s historic decision to strike down Section 3 of the discriminatory Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), GLAD has joined with ten other national LGBT advocacy organizations to issue this series of factsheets to provide guidance for navigating access to federal rights, benefits, and protections.

After DOMA: What it Means For You: LGBT Organizations Fact Sheet Series details many of the ways federal agencies accord legal respect to married same-sex couples.

If you have specific questions about your situation, please contact GLAD's Legal InfoLine at 800-455-GLAD or





Read Attorney General Holder's Letter to Congress announcing extension of Veterans Benefits to same-sex married couples.


These fact sheets were produced together by: American Civil Liberties Union, Center for American Progress, Family Equality Council, Freedom to Marry, Gay & Lesbian Advocates & Defenders, Human Rights Campaign, Immigration Equality, Lambda Legal, National Center for Lesbian Rights, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force and OutServe-SLDN.
