Members of the group "Until Love is Equal", wanted to send a message to city leaders, that the issue is not dying down.

HOLLAND, Mich. (WZZM) - Supporters of a proposed gay rights ordinance in Holland marched to City Hall Wednesday evening to speak out against discrimination.

About 60 people took part in the "Until Love is Equal" march.

In June, the Holland city council voted down a measure that would have added protection for gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people to Holland's civil rights policies.

Members of the group "Until Love is Equal" wanted to send a message to city leaders that the issue is not dying down.

Organizer Max Singer said, "It's important that the council actually see's it's people from Holland that are speaking out against this issue, and that care."

Supporters of the gay rights measure are still considering whether to launch a petition movement to put the matter before Holland voters.
