Civil rights pioneer joins Marriage Equality campaign
Bond, who has long been a critic of marriage discrimination, is also lending his voice to support the recognition of same-sex marriage in Maryland in 2012.
In North Carolina, voters will decide next May whether or not to endorse a constitutional amendment banning gay marriage.
According to Public Policy Polling, 61 percent of North Carolina voters say they support the amendment “defining marriage as between a man and a woman” but 51 percent of those same voters also believe there should be legal recognition for same-sex couples.
PPP also noted last month those fighting to defeat the amendment in North Carolina need to reach out to black Democrats. 70% of them support the amendment, whereas white Democrats oppose the amendment by a 57/37 margin.
