Austin became the first city in Texas to pass a resolution supporting marriage equality Thursday.
The City Council voted unanimously for the resolution a month after Equality Texas circulated a petition urging them to do so.
“The tide is changing in America and I hope that by joining this loud chorus, our city can play a significant role in helping set us on a path to full marriage equality in our country in my lifetime,” Austin Mayor Lee Leffingwell said Thursday.
