The Tennessean reports:
About 200 gay marriage supporters called for local same-sex benefits and national marriage rights at Public Square Park Saturday afternoon, the day state lawmakers specifically set aside to recognize traditional marriage. The demonstration was part of six events statewide that were sparked after the Tennessee General Assembly passed a resolution in April recognizing Saturday as “ido4life Traditional Marriage Day,” said Chris Sanders, president of the Tennessee Equality Project. “We thought that instead of fighting this in the legislature, we would rename the day and hold rallies across the state,” Sanders said.
Marriage equality will come to Tennessee eventually, one way or another, and it’s folks like these who will help make it happen.
