Equality IS a Hoosier Value and today at the Indiana Statehouse, 300 LGBT Hoosiers and their supporters made that message ring loud and clear. From the Indianapolis Star:
About 300 Hoosiers rallied at the Statehouse today to urge the defeat of a proposed constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage and to call for passage of legislation protecting gays from job discrimination and from hate crimes.
The same-sex marriage amendment is already considered dead, after House lawmakers decided not to give it a hearing. The earliest supporters could now get it passed and included in the Indiana constitution is 2012.
Much thanks to Indiana Equality and HRC for their hard work putting together the third annual rally at the Statehouse.
