The man who was behind getting the state law changed for vanity tags spoke exclusively with Channel 2 Action News about his victory. Cyrus Gilbert applied for a "gay rights" vanity plate. After being told the tag was unavailable, he did some digging and found gay advocacy tags were banned in Georgia. He sued and won his case. Although his attorney said lifting the ban is a step in the right direction, he believes progress still needs to be made. For instance, the new law bans gun language on a license plate; nonetheless Gilbert considers the latest change a victory.
