>Central Alabama Pride Sues Mayor Langford

>Central Alabama Pride has filed a federal lawsuit against Birmingham Mayor Larry Langford, citing his refusal to allow city workers to hang banners in honor of Gay Pride this year.

Here is a copy of the suit. Lawsuit

The suit claims discrimination based on the First and Fourteenth Amendments of the U. S. Constitution.

Langford says this is a “frivolous publicity stunt.”


He should know.

This suit, along with the great success of Pride this year, and the passage last year of the Birmingham Resolution of being an inclusive city, tells me that Birmingham is light years ahead of where we are perceived in the realm of GLBT equality.
