Less than two weeks after a federal judge declared Virginias ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, a new effort has been launched in the South seeking to build wider acceptance of gay and lesbian couples in the hope of overturning similar bans across the region.
The $1 million effort will be focused on field organizing and sharing the stories of gay couples through local community and business events as well as social media in 14 Southern states.
The key, supporters say, will be to share stories like those of Linda Ellis and her partner, Lesley Brogan, who appeared at Mondays event. The two have been together since 1988 and are raising their sons John, 15, and Sam, 12, in Decatur, Ga.

Marriage can only be between a man and a woman. Anything else is not marriage. If folks have a problem with that, take it up with God.
I say: Let everyone get married. Complete equality.
What we need is a new institution: Procreative Partnerships.
Oh aren’t they cute, now stay out of my state: NC.
By FORCING states to violate their own constitutions and laws?
Yeah, that's the key to making people "like" you.
"You see that, that boot? Well I want you to lick it! That's it! And again!"
Alex: "And would you believe it, your friend and humble narrator stuck his yazzok out a mile wide to lick the grozny, vonny boot."
Gays can tell their stories and the Christian baker & photographers can tell their stories of being sued out of business by the Gays. Then the Gays claim that their “marriage” won’t affect Straights will implode.
Every time a pair of homosexuals marry, a divorce lawyer buys a strip mall.
Good one! Can I steal that?
I agree. I sometimes marvel at the seething energy of sinners, seeking to fulfill their evil desires, but maybe the Apostle Paul also wondered about it, when he wrote Romans 1.
#TheAssciatedPress is: All Gay - All Day!
I hope it fails.
Are you talking to the wrong person? I hate and DO NOT accept “(fake) gay marriage”!!
And can a cake baker be forced to make a cake for Satanists celebrating the antiChrist?
Book publishers and even printing houses have a recognized right/power to reject work that they find personally offensive.
Just because there is a free press, doesn’t mean that any printshop HAS to print what is handed to them.
^ What he said.
I was not addressing you, I was addressing the article’s headline. Sorry for the confusion.
I wrote this exact same thing on another discussion website and my comment was deleted and I got a warning from the mods, “Keep your religion to yourself.”
I was tempted to reply, “Keep your religious worship of sodomy to YOURSELF !”
AP pushing propaganda of isolated anecdotes to destroy the USA’s families.
Time to start shutting down law schools which are pushing this left wing nonsense.
Time to keep the left away from children.
how? homosexuals are less than 2% and those that “marry” are less than 10% of that 2%.
no money there.
They still get divorced, though; e.g. Jane Lynch.
There may be some “gay” “marriages of convenience” in the future just because they can.
