Jazzie and Sonny Jones-Smith say now is the time for the approximate 21,000 same-sex couples in Georgia to march to their county clerk’s office on May 1 and demand a marriage license. Of course, all couples will be declined because same-sex marriage is illegal here—and that’s the point they want to make.
Sonny and Jazzie Jones-Smith are board members of In the Life Atlanta, the nonprofit organization that coordinates Black Gay Pride each year. They also online radio personalities for LoudMouthradio.com.
“Historically #MayDay” has been used as a distress signal in voice procedures in radio communication, which was only a befitting title for these same gender loving radio personalities,” states a press release from the couple.
The couple legally married in Washington, D.C.
“Sonny & Jazzie invites same sex and LGBTQ couples, organizations, media, friends and family that are allies in support of marriage equality in Georgia to take part in the May 1 initiative to invoke change by stepping up and let their voices be heard!” they state in the press release.
