Georgia, USA: Atlanta City Council Endorses Marriage EqualityAtlanta’s City Council approved a resolution Monday night to support marriage equality, countering Mayor Kasim Reed’s previously stated opposition to extending marriage rights to same-sex couples.

The effort was led by openly gay council member Alex Wan, who told the Georgia Voice that he had been waiting for the right moment to introduce the resolution.

“Folks in the community have been asking and encouraging me to do something,” Wan told the Voice. “And with Atlanta being the city it is and having such a large LGBT population, I really wanted us to be one of the leaders in the discussion on marriage equality.”
