    Wyoming-wide campaign launched for gay marriage


    CHEYENNE -- A new statewide campaign in support of gay marriage kicked off Monday in front of the Capitol building in Cheyenne.More than 70 people attended the rally including one of four same-sex couples who recently filed a lawsuit in state court, along with the National Center for Lesbian Rights, challenging Wyoming's ban on marriage for gays and lesbians.Citing the national trend, Artery predicted it won't be long before same-sex couples can marry and have equality in Wyoming -- known as the Equality State.

    In addition to the recently filed state-based lawsuit, oral arguments are set for April 10 in a federal case challenging Utah’s marriage ban. The case is on appeal after a federal judge struck down the ban and recently, several prominent Republicans – including former Wyoming U.S. Senator Alan Simpson – urged the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals to uphold the lower court's ruling.A second appeal will be heard April 17 in the 10th Circuit on a similar case from Oklahoma where a federal judge ruled the state’s marriage ban violated the U.S. Constitution. The 10th Circuit covers six states, including Wyoming.
