Gay Rights Activists Visit the Wyoming Capitol

Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - Wyoming Equality gathered more than 2300 signatures in just over a month to urge Wyoming governor Matt Mead and Attorney General Peter Michael to support marriage equality.

"Asking them to stop defending the marriage ban for same sex couples in the equality state," said Jeran Artery, the director of Wyoming Equality.

Most of the signatures came from online supporters, but they also received support from people in the local community at Superday.

"We had a line almost the entire day of people wanting to sign the petition," said Artery.

However not everyone is supportive of the idea of gay marriage in Wyoming. 'Its always been my belief that marriage is between a man and a woman," said one Cheyenne resident.

But everyone at the capitol on Tuesday seemed optimistic about the future of marriage equality in Cheyenne.

"It's crazy to us that it hasn't been passed yet, that people can't marry yet, its just crazy," said Bradley Bunz, a gay rights supporter.

"It is time for Wyoming to become the equality state. Period, end of story, the time is now, the time is today," said Artery.
