Hundreds marched in Dallas to protest Mayor Mike Rawlings’ refusal to support a marriage equality resolution. CBS reports:
The gay pride march was originally planned to bring attention to two marriage equality cases awaiting a ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court. Recent events however, at Dallas City Hall have given the rally a new purpose. Supporters said they’re protesting Mayor Mike Rawlings due to his decision not to put a resolution supporting gay marriage on the city council agenda. This isn’t the first time Rawlings has drawn the ire of protestors. Last year he refused to sign a pledge in support of a Constitutional law allowing same-sex marriage.
Sad that he can’t get behind even such a simple action for his LGBT citizens.
