South and North Carolina gay rights groups join up in same-sex marriage effort
In an effort to legalise same-sex marriage in much of the Southeast of the US, North and South Carolina activists have joined forces.
SC Equality and Equality NC on Friday together signed an amicus brief with the US Court of Appeals, pushing for same-sex marriage in a case brought by a same-sex couple in the state of Virginia.
The brief agrees with the lawsuit filed in the Fourth Circuit court that the state’s same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional.
It is likely that the case will eventually go to the Supreme Court.
