CLEVELAND- While praising the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on same-sex marriage, the Cleveland City Council announced it will join a celebratory rally at the steps of city hall.
Councilman Joe Cimperman lead the Friday afternoon rally, which opened with a prayer.
“This is a proud day for our country and our community. We are celebrating human rights, we are celebrating tolerance and we are celebrating an awareness that love is a mighty force, able to conquer bigotry and discrimination," Councilman Joe Cimperman said, in a statement on Friday.
Cimperman was joined by Sen. Sherrod Brown and his wife, former Plain Dealer columnist Connie Schultz.
Dozens waves rainbow flags and wore equality shirts in support of the court's landmark decision.
