A gay rights activist since the ’70s, Judy Rickard has been highlighting the struggles of same-sex binational couples since she fell in love with Karin, a U.K. citizen. Now married, they are advocating for green card applications like theirs to be held in abeyance while DOMA makes its way through the courts, or is repealed by Congress. Judy is the author of Torn Apart: United by Love, Divided by Law, published in 2011.
