The man behind Obergefell v. Hodges

In our exclusive Yahoo News interview Jim Obergefell, the lead plaintiff in a SCOTUS case that could change gay rights in America, tells his incredible story. Meet Jim, and learn about his 20 year relationship with his husband John, John’s fight with ALS, their marriage on the tarmac of Baltimore-Washington International Airport and the emotional journey that has lead him all the way to the Supreme Court.

“I’m hoping that night, as I lie in bed and talk to John and tell him about my day, I hope that I’m able to say, ‘John, we won. We helped bring marriage equality to the United States. Hard to believe we did it. And I wish you were here to celebrate with me.’”— Jim Obergefell
