FINALLY...Gay GOP Group GOProud Supports Gay Marriage

Gay GOP group GOProud on Friday announced it now supports marriage rights for gay and lesbian couples.

“We support same-sex marriage, civil marriage,” GOProud executive director Jimmy LaSalvia told BuzzFeed's Chris Geidner.

Since its inception in 2009, the group has maintained that it has no position on marriage equality because it is not a federal issue. However, it has said that it opposes the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which prevents federal agencies from recognizing the legal marriages of gay couples. Full story here!
