With signs and chants, dozens of people gathered at the West Lafayette Public Library on Sunday afternoon to rally against proposed legislation to ban gay marriage in Indiana.

The vote on the resolution could happen as early as Monday at the Indiana Statehouse where 38 members are currently against the amendment and 38 in favor. Twenty-four members say they are undecided or declining to comment on their vote.

Media Liason for Pride Lafayette Ashley Smtih says the issue is one for all Hoosiers.

“This is a big issue that affects all of us and if you believe in it you’ll take the day off and you’ll join us in Indianapolis,” said Smith.

The resolution needs 51 votes to move to the Senate. If it passes there, it will go before Hoosier voters in November.
