RALEIGH, N.C. — Opponents of a proposed constitutional ban on gay marriage in North Carolina are hoping for their largest public show of support yet with a march and rally at the state capitol.
The march is scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. Thursday near the North Carolina State University bell tower, and then move to the mall at the capitol.
In a permit application filed last month, organizers of the march say they expect about 1,000 people to attend.
The rally is aimed at convincing North Carolinians to vote against a May referendum proposal that would see the state constitution define marriage as between a man and a woman.
North Carolina is the last state in the southeast without such a constitutional amendment.
