CHARLOTTE – Hundreds of people marched through uptown Charlotte Friday evening to speak out against sexual discrimination.
They were advocating against a bill currently circulating in the General Assembly which would ban gay marriage in North Carolina.
The rally, which is part of the Standing on the Side of Love campaign, featured interfaith leaders, members of the lesbian, gay and transgender community, family and friends.
“As a parent, it's extremely painful to see my children aren't accorded equal rights and it's worse when I see the state legislature feel it's appropriate to write discrimination into the constitution against my children,” said advocate Sue Null.
The march ended in Marshall Park with dozens of speakers from local churches.
