Gay Marriage

By  | 

Gay rights supporters are preparing a lawsuit over the same-sex marriage amendment that Georgia voters approved.

Meanwhile, gay people are wondering what effect the ban will have if it's not tossed by judges.

The lawsuit, expected to be filed in about a week when the vote is certified, will contend that the language was illegal because it did not fully explain the changes to the state constitution.

Georgia voters approved the amendment more than 3-1 Tuesday, with the question of whether marriage should be only between a man and a woman getting huge margins in almost every demographic group.

The results left many gay people crestfallen but vowing to challenge the amendment in court.

Representative Karla Drenner, a Democrat from Avondale Estates, is leader of Georgians Against Discrimination. She vows opponents of the amendment will, "win the war."
