Georgia, USA: Gay Couples Denied Marriage Licenses in Decatur

Written by scott on January 8th, 2013

Gay Couples Denied Marriage Licenses in Decatur, GeorgiaFive gay couples from the “We Do” campaign sponsored by the Campaign for Southern Equality, requested and were denied marriage licenses in Decatur, Georgia yesterday.

The action follows a similar demonstration last week in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

The GA Voice reports:

While the couples knew they would be denied a marriage license because of Georgia’s state constitutional amendment limiting marriage to opposite-sex couples, they all said they wanted to put a face on LGBT people in the state who are treated as second-class citizens because of who they love.
