Binational gay couple to challenge federal DOMA

10/28/09 On Top Magazine:
Tim Coco and Genesio “Junior” Oliveira, a binational gay couple, announced Monday they would challenge the 13-year-old law that bans the federal government from recognizing the marriages of gay and lesbian couples ... The pair married in Massachusetts in 2005, three years after they met. Because federal immigration law does not recognize the couple's marriage, Coco is not allowed to sponsor his husband for citizenship."
