Retired Supreme Court Justice Steven Levinson received a special gift from former Governor Neil Abercrombie: the pen he used to sign the marriage equality bill into law.

Last December, same sex marriage became legal in Hawai‘i.  The state Department of Health says same-sex marriages make up about 12% of all weddings here, with more than 3000 registered couples in the past year. HPR’s Molly Solomon caught up with a couple of people…who played very personal -- and very different roles in the story of marriage equality in Hawai‘i.
