We first met Audrey Smaltz, an olympic champion and and Gail Marquis, a former model and fashion editor, in 2011 when they appeared in the documentary film, “The Devotion Project.” After 12 years together, the couple got married on November 11, 2011. “The day was perfect!” Audrey said when talking about their wedding day in the film. “When you finally got out of the car and walked across Central Park West, Oh my God, you were so gorgeous in that yellow jacket!”
Today, in celebration of the first anniversary of the Supreme Court striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), MSNBC shared an interview with the couple. Audrey said that she has noticed a general shift in attitude after DOMA was struck down. “We’re not a novelty anymore,” she said. Gail agreed, “Someone that you know is gay and you like them and it’s alright! Big deal!” READ THE FULL INTERVIEW ON MSNBC.
