Braddock Mayor John Fetterman on Monday performed the first gay wedding in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

As officials on the other side of the state in Montgomery County began issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples, Fetterman spoke out against the state's law which limits marriage to heterosexual couples.

John Kandray and Bill Gray, together 11 years, traveled from their Regent Square home outside Pittsburgh to Montgomery County, where they were issued a marriage license.

The couple exchange vows before friends and family in a ceremony held at the mayor's home.

“I just think it's time people in Pennsylvania say, Mr. Corbett, you know, tear down this law,” Fetterman told local CBS affiliate KDKA. “DOMA is a fundamentally unjust piece of legislation.”

“We pay the same taxes, we do everything the same, but we don't have the same rights,” Kandray said. “It felt like, you know what, let's stand up for ourselves and do this.”
