Lindsay Myers and Sarah Humlie were married in Washington, D.C., in December 2012. They have been together for 3 ½ years and currently live in Pensacola, Florida. Lindsay has a master’s degree in theology and currently works for the University of West Florida as a digital content producer for WUBF, a university-licensed NPR affiliate. Sarah is the Executive Director of the Pensacola Humane Society.
Sarah does not receive health insurance through her employer, and because Lindsay is not permitted to have Sarah on her health insurance plan because of Florida’s discriminatory ban on recognizing the marriages of same-sex couples, the couple must pay hundreds of dollars per month for private health insurance for Sarah.
