Hamblen County votes down anti-LGBT resolution

Written by 

Hamblen County Government

 

Good news! Hamblen County, Tennessee rejected the anti-LGBT resolution!

Last month, we saw that Hamblen County had to vote on a resolution opposing LGBTQ rights. By a 7-1 vote, a committee approved it urging state politicians to reject US Supreme Court's decision to legalize marriage equality. Following this vote, the county commission has to express its support or opposition to the resolution.

About fifty protesters had gathered outside the courthouse to show their strong opposition. And county commissioners rejected the resolution by a 4-5 vote, with 4 abstentions.

The battle still continues at the state level. Last year, Republican legislators introduced a bill that would define marriage as a heterosexual union. This one should be reviewed this year.

Today, in any case, it's a good news and a new victory in Tennessee!
