Registro Civil de Madrid, located at Calle de Pradillo, 66, is the civil registry for the city where marriages were marriage licenses can be applied for. On 21 November 1995, a lesbian couple and 2 gay male couples went to the Registro Civil in Madrid and tried to apply for marriage licenses there. They were rejected but their attempt at applying for them was reported on by the media. This proved a giant step in mobilizing COGAM and other LGBT organizations in Madrid around same-sex marriage. A few days later, on 25 November 1995, COGAM organized one of the first state level marches demanding marriage equality, turning out some of the largest number of people to date in support of LGB rights.
