Valdosta Mayor John Gayle refused to sign a proclamation naming Sept. 15 as South Georgia Pride Day because he doesn't believe in gay marriage or the LGBT "lifestyle," according to a local activist and Pride organizer.
"He said he had strong personal convictions and beliefs and doesn't approve of my lifestyle or gay marriage," said Raynae Williams, a lesbian and assistant executive director of South Georgia Pride. Williams met with the mayor today and said the meeting lasted no more than five minutes.

Valdosta is located approximately 230 milies south of Atlanta.
