Gay Marriage, 1979:  "You have failed to establish that a bona fide marital relationship can exist between two faggots." This was the message Anthony Corbett Sullivan (center) and Richard Frank Adams (right) received from the Los Angeles District Director of Immigration and Naturalization Service, rejecting Sullivan's request for a visa extension. Sullivan, an Australlian, had married Adams in Boulder, Colorado, in 1975. Attorney David M. Brown appears at left.
