Dayton To Attend OutFront Minnesota Rally
Gay rights activists and their allies are gathering at Minnesota’s Capitol for an annual rally that’s likely to be dominated this year by the effort to legalize gay marriage in the state.
OutFront Minnesota holds its rally Thursday. That’s the state’s most influential gay rights group and one of the chief backers of the bill to make gay marriage legal. The group is expecting several thousand supporters at the Capitol where they will also be urged to lobby their lawmakers on the issue.
Gov. Mark Dayton is scheduled to speak at the rally as he supports gay marriage.
