Key West Endorses Same-Sex Marriage

Following up on yesterday’s post, the city commission of Key West has passed resolutions endorsing same-sex marriage and condeming the push for a constitutional amendment that would ban it.

”Every movement has a start, and a lot of times it’s controversial,” Key West Mayor Jimmy Weekley said moments before the measures went to a vote. “We’re joining in to assure the civil rights of all Americans. We need to be a spearhead of this movement. This is just simply the right thing to do.”

Long live The Conch Republic.
