Image text: Puppies at the Aquarium! So much cuteness!

Boston is looking to update/expand gender options on marriage paperwork. Info for the focus groups is on their post. Ps DO NOT go read the comments on the original post on the city page unless you want a heavy side of RAGE with your coffee.

We're improving the way we ask people about their gender identity for key City services. Our first step is adding more gender identities to marriage licenses. Want to share your opinions and experiences? Sign up for a focus group!
