The Democratic Party’s Platform Committee unanimously approved language expressing support for marriage equality at its meeting Saturday in Detroit, sending the proposal on for ratification at the national convention next month in Charlotte, N.C.

The final platform language has not yet been released, but the source said that the LGBT-specific sections, including the new amendment, would not change between now and the convention.
