More than 10 people congregated in a busy corner in downtown Grand Rapids today, Dec. 5, to protest for LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual) rights, specifically same sex marriage. The group, organized by Fred Wooden, senior minister of Fountain Street Church, has been meeting in the corner Monroe Avenue and Pearl Street since 2009 as a way to support gay marriage.
“We have been doing this for the last 4 years. It is our way to support gay rights and gay marriage,” he said.
For Bree Duma, who also attends Fountain Street Church, the issue is very personal. She said if she were to stay in Michigan, she will never be able to marry.
