Havre de Grace, Md - On the Bridge at Rte 155 over Interstate 95 Light Brigade Maryland (LBM) sent a message last Thursday night to all the passing motorists traveling on the northbound side of the highway. Their message read, “Vote For Marriage Equality.” This is an effort to bring awareness to Maryland Referendum Question No. 6. When this measure passes it will allow gay and lesbian couples the right to get a state-issued marriage license. "When this passes, Maryland will be the first state to pass Civil Marriage at the referendum ballot box," said a PFLAG ally who stood as one of the "Holders of Light".

This group plans to promote the idea that a “Vote for Question 6” is a vote for fairness and equality, and they promise to hold "bridge parties" once or twice a week from now until the November Election Day.

Light Brigade Maryland, has occupied three different bridges and Federal Hill overlooking Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. LBM have plans to bring the message to Maryland voters once or twice a week until the November election.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
