Denton area residents have already asked the City Council for a resolution in support of human rights and the recognition of marriage between same sex partners, similar to Austin. So far, the city council has not taken up the matter.

No word yet whether local residents will be back on the courthouse steps as they were earlier this year when the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act.
