This is becoming more common. A politician has come out in favor of marriage equality.
What is unusual is that this politician is a candidate in Alabama.

DeVore Montai Jones is running for mayor of Prattville, AL.
“Same-sex rights are the civil and human rights issue of the 21st century. I believe same-sex, gay and transgender citizens need to have the same protection and rights of everyone else.”
City elections are August 28.
We don’t know the stances of the other mayoral candidates but we applaud Mr. Jones for taking a stand for equality, and wish him much success.
