Mayor Greg Fischer joins group that supports same-sex marriage

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer is getting behind a national group that supports same-sex marriage.

The group is called Mayors for the Freedom to Marry, which is a nonpartisan organization of mayors who support gay marriage.

The national group says it has the support of 400 mayors from 39 states around the country, including Bardstown, Kentucky, mayor Bill Sheckles.

Fischer says gay and lesbian couples deserve the protections that only marriage can provide. He is in Dallas Friday for a meeting by the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Dallas.

The news comes as the Kentuckiana Pride Festival takes place this weekend in Louisville.
