Tennessee Freemasons meeting this week in Nashville will vote on whether to lift their ban on gay members.

According to Nashville ABC affiliate WKRN, the fraternal organization will consider the issue on Wednesday. A vote is scheduled for the following day.

The vote comes just months after two Masons came out gay and got married. The couple was suspended from the organization.

“We don't want to be considered bigoted in that way,” Chase Geiser, who joined the Freemasons in 2011-2012, told the station. “It's embarrassing. Also, we have these brothers that are very good men, and feel it's shameful what is happening to them and unfair.”

Geiser added that Masonry is a very charitable organization with “good lessons to teach.”

Tennessee has roughly 30,000 Freemasons.
