Transgender man, wife say Rowan Co. clerk issued them marriage license

ROWAN COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - A transgender couple in Rowan County say Clerk Kim Davis issued them a marriage license in February.

Camryn Colen, who is transgender, and his wife, Alexis, who identifies as pansexual, said Davis' office provided the license on Feb. 26 without asking for Camryn's birth certificate, which identifies Camryn as female.

The couple says David did ask to see Alexis's license to see how old she was.

"It was issued. They were married that day. It was filed, so in all actuality, she married a gay couple," Mary Hargis, who is with the Rowan County Rights Coalition, told WKYT.

The couple participated in a Saturday's rally outside the courthouse.

Hargis says Camryn and Alexis waited to come forward because they were nervous about how the public would handle the news.
