WICHITA, Kan. — A Wichita couple decided to get married Saturday at a pride event instead of waiting until later this year after a Supreme Court justice suggested the court should consider overturning rulings legalizing same-sex marriage and striking down laws criminalizing gay sex.
Elliot and Juniper Chibs got married in front of hundreds of people at Naftzger Park in Wichita. Their marriage is legal now, but they worry that could change. Elliot Chibs told the Wichita Eagle that she’s afraid the court will take away the right to gay marriage.
Wichita Mayor Brandon Whipple, who attended the pride event said the court’s ruling is a wake-up that other rights are at risk now.
