We Do Campaign

Dozens of gay and lesbian couples march on Greenville county court this morning, requesting marriage licenses.

The protest was organized by the Asheville-based Campaign for Southern Equality.

In all six same-sex couples applied for marriage licenses this morning, all were denied.

They were joined by about a hundred folks marching here on the county building as a show of solidarity.

The effort part of a nationwide campaign, primarily in the south, to highlight what these couples say is discrimination against gays and lesbians.

At 3 p.m. today the group will lead more same sex couples to Asheville to demand marriage licenses there.

News 13 will be there and we'll have a live report.
