atlanta freedom bands at inauguration

Members of the Atlanta Freedom Bands at President Obama’s second inauguration

State and local governments pass resolutions honoring all kinds of things, usually with no one paying much mind.

But Georgia state Rep. Matt Ramsey (R-Peachtree City) was so interested in a proposed resolution honoring an LGBT marching band that he’s apparently trying to block its passage.

Ramsey requested a delay on voting on a resolution recognizing the Atlanta Freedom Marching Bands, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary and gearing up to host the Lesbian And Gay Band Association conference during Atlanta Pride.

His only explanation for the delay was that GOP caucus members had “some questions” about it.

Jeez, don’t folks in marching bands get enough crap?
