This morning, as The New Civil Rights Movement has been reporting, ten North Carolina same-sex couples applied for marriage licenses. Asheville’s Drew Reisinger, the register of deeds, is holding those applications awaiting direction from the attorney general as North Carolina passed a constitutional ban against same-sex marriage last year. In the meantime, for the first time ever in the Tar Heel State, couples like this one weren’t rejected outright, they were welcomed.

That one small step ha huge meaning for these ten couples and all their supporters — about one hundred, according to local reports.
