Abstract

During the process of publication of this issue of Lesbian & Gay Psychology Review (June, 2005) a landmark High Court case was held in the UK involving two of the founder members of the Lesbian & Gay Psychology Section. Celia Kitzinger and Sue Wilkinson were legally married in Vancouver in 2003 and sought legal recognition of their Canadian marriage, arguing that the failure to acknowledge it is a breach of their human rights (Wilkinson & Kitzinger, 2006). It is to mark this event that we decided to publish the special feature on same sex marriage which you will find in the pages that follow.
