Wicked Awesome :: 70 Mayors from Across U.S. to Launch Marriage Equality Campaign

Via Towleroad: “Mayor Jerry Sanders goes to Washington this week during the U.S. Conference of Mayors to launch “Mayors for Freedom to Marry.” Sanders and Boston Mayor Thomas Menino are scheduled for a joint news conference Friday morning to announce the campaign to “end marriage discrimination.” Joining the campaign: mayors from some 70 U.S. cities, including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Houston. L.A.’s Antonio Villaraigosa and New York’s Michael Bloomberg are co-chairs with Sanders and Menino. After years of opposition to gay marriage, Sanders changed course in 2007, saying his daughter, Lisa, and her partner, Meaghan Yaple, deserved equal justice.”

WGB: Bravo!!!!  I am also very pleased that Boston’s own Mayor Menino is involved in this effort.
