PODCAST: Widower tells painful story of not being “family”


In this edition of the One Iowa podcast, William Schulte talks about the death of his husband, Rob. Even though they’d been together 10 years, in their new home of Colorado, William was not legally considered his husband’s “family”.

William chose to tell his painful story because he understands first-hand the unique grief suffered by same-sex couples with no legal recognition, and he doesn’t want Iowa to be the kind of state that discriminates against its citizens. Unfortunately, House Joint Resolution 6, now being discussed in the Iowa House would put these protections, now in place for gay and lesbian families, up for a majority vote, possibly making Iowa a state that actually takes legal protections away from its minority citizens.
