Rev. Jesse Jackson Asks Voters to Support Marriage Equality
Note from GLAAD
The Rev. Jesse Jackson, again, is lending his support and voice to advancing policy to grant all LGBT communities full marriage equality.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson, who said in a recent interview that he would perform a same-sex wedding ceremony if a gay or lesbian couple asked him to do so, is urging Maryland voters to adopt his view of gay rights as civil rights by voting in favor of a ballot measure that would provide for marriage equality in the state. Although the legislature passed a bill that Gov. Martin O'Malley signed, voters will decide the issue in November. Jackson seems to be targeting the state's large African-American community with his remarks.
