A visit to the DMV is rarely a pleasant experience for anyone, but now, a Florida-based lesbian couple says they are humiliated by their driver’s license application “nightmare.”
Although newlyweds Rachel and Charlotte Lambert-Jolley say they were told they would be able to change their names in Florida with the appropriate documentation, authorities at a Pinellas County DMV ultimately rejected their request after an hour-long wait, Saint Petersburg 10 News is reporting.
“To have multiple people tell you, ‘It’s fine, it’s fine,’ [then] you go in there and think you are good, then boom! It’s a slap in the face, pretty much,” Rachel said. Added Charlotte: “People shouldn’t be put in the position to feel how we felt,” Charlotte said.
