According to the Tampa Bay Times, "Daniel DeSousa and Scott Wall married in New York last year and legally changed their last name to Wall-DeSousa through the federal Social Security Administration. Daniel changed his driver's license in Brevard County, but when Scott tried there, he was told that his marriage certificate wasn't a legal document in Florida. Scott later succeeded in changing his license in Orange County. The couple said when they went public with their new drivers' licenses in an interview with an Orlando television station, they received a letter from the DMV, stating their licenses had been canceled."
DeSousa and Scott Wall have filed a lawsuit.
Florida's governor and Attorney General have spent hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars in legal efforts to keep LGBT Floridians legally treated as second-class citizens. They have gone as far as to claim that equality for LGBT Floridians would be devastating to Florida fdamilies and Florida's economy.
"The blatantly bigoted treatment of Daniel DeSousa and Scott Wall by the State of Florida and the Florida Department of Motor Vehicles is just another example of a long history of inequality in Florida. If heterosexual couples can be married and have their name changes legally recognized, then ALL couples must be treated equally. To have the Florida DMV issue Daniel DeSousa and Scott Wall's driver's licenses and then revoke them is nothing more than harassment of LGBT people." Steven Skelley
