The Travis County Clerk's office announced in a press conference that Travis will begin issuing marriage licenses Friday at 10:30 a.m.
Same-sex marriage is a fundamental right, while state bans violate the principle of equal protection under the law, the court concluded.
Travis County clerk Dana DeBeauvoir began issuing same-sex marriage licenses at 10:30 a.m. Friday and said her office will stay open until 6:30 p.m. Extended office hours will continue next week and through the Fourth of July weekend.
“This is a joyous day. I am delighted for all couples who wish to be legally married in Texas,” DeBeauvoir said.
