Jeremy MathisThe father of a 6 year old transgender child in Colorado will push for a marriage equality initiative in the state. LGBTQ Nation reports:

The father of a 6-year-old Colorado transgender student who earlier this year won a landmark civil rights case regarding public accommodations, plans to submit a draft of a petition on Aug. 19 to collect signatures asking voters in 2014 to approve same-sex marriage in Colorado. Jeremy Mathis, 31, and his ballot question to amend the state’s constitution to allow same-sex marriage in Colorado, cleared a title board hearing Aug. 7, he said… The petition must be approved by the secretary of state, mostly a matter of legal formality. Mathis must collect nearly 90,000 valid signatures of Colorado voters in order to put the question on the ballot. He’s confident if he and a grassroots coalition of volunteers can accomplish the Herculean task without a financer, voters will approve marriage equality.

There’s no fiercer advocate for LGBT rights than the supportive mother or father of an LGBT child.
