GLBT Michiganders and their allies from across the state will rally in Lansing on the Capitol steps ahead of Gov. Rick Snyder’s “State of the State” address. Their message: Gay Families Matter. Protesters want to express their disapproval of the governor’s support for a law that profoundly impacts their quality of life – Snyder signed a bill that blocks employer health care coverage for unmarried partners of state employees. Members of LGBT community groups from across the state will speak out against discriminatory legislation in Michigan. Michael Gregor, of Equality Michigan, the state’s largest GLBT advocacy group, believes many Michiganders were disappointed by Snyder’s support for the domestic partner benefits ban.
