The 'Campaign for Southern Equality' In Mississippi

Written by 




While knowing that their request would be refused, 5 lesbian couples applied for licences of marriage in Forrest County, Mississippi to show the desire of the LGBTQ community of all the Southern states to obtain also more rights.

The 'Campaign for Southern Equality' is a call for actions to spread marriage equality in all the states.

The Associated Press reported that Mississippi’s Forrest County Circuit Clerk, Lou Ellen Adams, politely told the couples she could not legally issue the licenses.

"I have to take an oath that I have to up hold the laws of the state of Mississippi, and this law says that I cannot issue this license," she said.
