Do you remember when you first fell in love with your honey? For Shante and Torri, the memory is vivid:

“She trapped me. We went out on a little date and we ended up going back to the apartment so she could get a jacket because we were going to a party. But we ended up listening to Jimi Hendrix and, you know, if anybody puts on Jimmy Hendrix, you just can’t leave.”

The two are being featured in a new photo series being promoted by the Freedom to Marry organization. The Spirit of the South photo series features LGBT couples and their supporters who are campaigning for marriage rights in the South.

Shante and Tori, who live in Alabama, say, “We’re not going to get legally married until it is legal in Alabama. I’m not going to go anywhere else to be married. If everything else I do is here, why should I go somewhere else to get married?”

They definitely have a great point. Click here to see other photos in the Spirit of the South series.
