Georgia, USA: Atlanta Mayor Announces Support for Marriage Equality

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

Atlanta Mayor Announces Support for Marriage EqualityWhen President Barack Obama came out in support of marriage equality, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed said that he was still “wrestling with my own personal beliefs.” Now, Reed, joining such civil rights leaders as Rev. Al Sharpton and U.S. Rep John Lewis, has voiced his full support for people of the same sex having the right to marry like every other citizen.

My Praise Atlanta reports:

“Today marks an important day as I announce my support for marriage equality,” said Mayor Reed in a statement. “It is well known that I have gone through a good bit of reflection on this issue, but listening to the stories of so many people that I know and care about has strengthened my belief that marriage is a fundamental right for everyone.”
