Same-Sex Rallies

The Metropolitan Community Church in Omaha held a rally May 16th, against Nebraska's ban on same-sex unions. May 17th, church officials are hoping that 200 gay and lesbian couples will go to the Douglas County courthouse, to apply for marriage licenses. The Reverend Barbara Sagat says it will be an opportunity for gay and lesbian couples to celebrate with their families, and to demonstrate they have families and family values. Nebraska voters approved an initiative in 2002 that bans same-sex unions.
