U.S. Mayors for the Freedom to Marry

Almost 500 mayors from 44 U.S. states have signed the Freedom to Marry campaign Mayors for Marriage.
The mayors of six of America’s great cities, San Diego, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Houston, Atlanta and Phoenix, lead this nonpartisan group of mayors who support ending marriage discrimination at all levels of government.
They are all agree on the goal: securing the freedom to marry and upholding equal rights for all citizens.
They invite all their colleagues to join them in signing the statement to advocate for the freedom to marry and build a nation where all couples who want to make the life-long commitment can share in the joy and respect of marriage.
Read the Mayors for the Freedom to Marry statement here.

The U.S. mayors Kevin Faulconer (San Diego), Eric Garcetti (Los Angeles), Michael Nutter (Philadelphia), Annise Parker (Houston), Kasim Reed (Atlanta) and Greg Stanton (Phoenix) lead this initiative for same-sex marriage


  1. Anise Parker is a lesbian, and Houston is the fourth biggest city in the USA with almost 2.2 million people. It is quite an accomplishment! In addition, Seattle Washington, the largest city in the Pacific Northwest, now has a gay male mayor -- Ed Murray. Both mayors were elected when they were fully out. Many other US cities have LGBT mayors, but these two are the most notable.

  2. Thanks for your comment Eddi, a great initiative for equal marriage!
