Florida legalized same-sex marriages in January 2015, after 38 years of prohibition against it.
Now, same-sex couples of Florida have the same rights as heterosexual couples.
They can live their lives together, adopt children, and as of May 2016, both parents are listed on the birth certificate, officializing their families.
Daniel Sohn is the first LGBT councilman elected in the history of Haverhill.
He received over 60% of the votes in 2018, when he was 27 years old, making him the youngest official ever elected in Palm Beach County.
He is a proud member of the LGBTQ community and constantly offering support and fighting for their rights.
This is not the first gay wedding in Florida, but it surely has a great impact.
