On Thursday, Feb 12th, members of GLAAM and the Brown Queer Alliance turned out in force at the RI State House for the Marriage Equality Rally held by Marriage Equality Rhode Island (MERI)! The rally occured in support of legislation in the state of Rhode Island to provide marriage equality for same-sex couples.
This rally was a followup of another rally in November 15, 2008, where members of GLAAM turned out at the Rhode Island Statehouse along with hundreds of others in protest against the passing of Proposition 8 in California on November 4th. The proposition had altered the Californian state constitution to define marriage as only the union between a man and a woman, thereby infringing on the right of same-sex couples to marry in that state.
