The Campaign for Southern Equality advocates for LGBT respect in the Southern states. This video of Brenda Clark and Carol McCrory is lovely.
Last month, for the first time “an official in western North Carolina has accepted marriage license requests,” according to the Associated Press, “from 10 same-gender couples, despite a 2012 amendment to the state constitution forbidding such marriages.”
“Brenda Clark and Carol McCrory, a couple who have been together for 25 years, were the first to ask Reisinger for a license Tuesday morning as part of an effort sponsored by the Campaign for Southern Equality, a rights group. The group has been going around the state seeking someone to issue marriage licenses for same-sex couples as part of its “We Do” campaign,” reports the LA Times.
