US: Equality supporters ask officials to drop defense of Wyoming’s marriage ban
Marriage equality supporters in Wyoming have delivered more than 2,300 signatures asking the governor and attorney general to stop their defense of the state’s same-sex marriage ban.
Wyoming Equality delivered the signatures Tuesday to the governor’s office.
According to Wyoming News, Governor Matt Mead told the supporters that he would continue to support the same-sex marriage ban.
Jeran Artery, executive director of Wyoming Equality, told Wyoming News that the signatures were mostly collected over online petitions.
He said out-of-state residents signed on in solidarity, but only Wyoming residents were counted as part of the 2,300 signatures.
