Iowa Rally Supporting Marriage Equality Draws 300

Iowa Approximately 200-300 people attended a rally on Sunday supporting marriage equality in Des Moines:

"Six speakers touted Iowa's long history of equality, their pride following the Iowa Supreme Court ruling in April that made gay marriage legal, and how Iowans must not allow legislators to reverse the decision. The group also unveiled a new commercial in support of gay marriage. 'This is what Iowa should be known for - fairness and also what I think is an equitable way of life,' said Lorenzo Sandoval, a Des Moines resident. State Sen. Majority Leader Mike Gronstal, D-Council Bluffs, stopped in to pledge his support for same-sex couples."
