Impact Florida says protest is a response to governor’s support of the state’s anti-gay marriage amendment
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — A gay rights group that wants all Floridians to have the right to marry says it will hold a demonstration outside Gov. Charlie Crist’s wedding.
A spokeswoman for Impact Florida says the group plans to demonstrate at Crist’s December wedding because he supported Amendment 2, which bans same-sex marriage in the state.
Crist plans to marry his fiancee Carole Rome on Dec. 12 at the First United Methodist Church in St. Petersburg.
Impact Florida says its gathering outside the church will be peaceful and that advocates will wear pink.
