One Iowa Holds Forum on Gay Marriage in Sioux City

12/02/09 Sioux City Journal:

SIOUX CITY -- Advocates for same-sex marriage urged local supporters to share their stories about the issue to counter political attempts to ban such marriages in Iowa. The encouragement came during a forum that statewide gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender advocacy group One Iowa held Tuesday in downtown Sioux City. Ryan Crane, One Iowa regional organizer, said it's important supporters let their community and legislative representatives know the movement to maintain marriage equality in Iowa has more support than they might think ... It's possible that the next push for a constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage could come as soon as the start of the next legislative session in January, Crane said ... The forum Tuesday was one of 17 that One Iowa is hosting across the state.
