Wyoming gay rights activists rallied over the weekend to protest a state bill that would prohibit recognition of out-of-state marriages for same-sex couples.
In Casper about 50 people turned up for a pro-marriage equality rally, waving signs reading "Civil Rights for Wyomingites"
and "Protect our people like we protect guns," the Casper Star-Tribunereports.
University of Wyoming students also protested the bill, HB 74, in Laramie. If the bill passes its third reading in the state house Monday, the legislation will then be debated in the senate.
