WILSON, N.C. (AP) — Same sex couples are heading to two North Carolina courthouses, knowing they will be turned down for marriage licenses.

The couples are part of a campaign called “We Do,” meant to protest bans on gay marriage across the Southeast.

Same-sex couples plan to ask for marriage licenses in Wilson County and Forsyth County on Monday. The couples live in the counties where they are requesting the licenses. The group also plans a prayer service.

The group has already visited courthouses in Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, South Carolina and Tennessee so far this year.
