Marriage Equality Rally draws over 100 people locally
On Tuesday, March 26, Marriage Equality for Pennsylvania held a vigil in front of the Federal Courthouse at 6th and State, Erie PA in response to the US Supreme Court hearing arguments about the California's Proposition 8 and the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA).
The event was organized in conjunction with the national organization Get Equal, and there were other vigils across Pennsylvania and the nation. Over 100 people attended, and there was coverage by both local TV broadcast outlets.
Speakers included Brit Wager and her fiancee Kathy Eads, Heather Burrows, ME4PA founder David Moore and ME4PA co-founder Joshua Szczesny, Democratic candidate for governor John Hanger, and engaged couple Erin Moll and Amy Terrizzi.
Local organizations present at the vigil included NW PA Pride Alliance, Erie Gay News, Identity, LBT Women of Erie, Allegheny College Queers & Allies, and Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Erie.
