STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - The Starkville Board of Aldermen has reversed an earlier decision and approved a permit for a gay pride parade to take place later this month.
The board vote was tied, but Mayor Lynn Spruill broke the tie and approved the permit.
Last month, the board rejected the permit request by Starkville Pride.
That led the organization to file a federal lawsuit arguing the denial was unconstitutional.
