While LGBT people around the nation celebrate the landmark victories for marriage equality at the Supreme Court, the Campaign for Southern Equality is once again bringing the fight for equality into the Deep South. 

In 2011 the group launched its We Do campaign, highlighting real same-sex couples who stood up and asked for marriage licenses in their hometowns across the South. Each couple was denied a license but gained the opportunity to shine a light on how their home state treats them as fundamentally unequal. After a two-month hiatus, the We Do couples are back on the road, speaking out for equal treatment in what some might consider an unlikely locale: Mississippi.
