Pennsylvania, USA: Marriage Equality Rally Planned for Valentines Day in Uniontown

PennsylvaniaThe group Marriage Equality for Southwest Pennsylvania is planning a rally on the steps of the Fayette County Courthouse in Uniontown on Valentine’s Day at 1 PM, according to the Herald Standard:

The rally itself is meant to bring a positive message on the topic, said Johnston, adding there is a “wow” factor in the choice to hold the event on Valentine’s Day “It’s a day about love and marriage that has been reserved for traditional partners but it’s a good day to get people involved in the discussion,” said Johnston.

It’s great to see this action in pennsylvania, though with a gerrymandered republican majority in the legislature, it may be some time before this translates into actual marriage equality in the state.

But it’s an important step.
