Never would people view Asheville, North Carolina as a hot bed for marriage equality. However hundreds of people packed an Asheville church for a candlelight vigil for justice. The event had a standing room only crowd.
As reported by the Asheville Citizen-Times:
“I’ve been a mess today,” Beach-Ferrara told the crowd that included people lining the walls of the First Congregational United Church of Christ. “This, I guess, is what it feels like to live through history.”
“This is what it feels like for LGBT people and allies to be standing and saying enough. It is time for the laws in our country to change,” she told the crowd.
