LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A pro-gay marriage national group is getting support from Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer.

The group is called Mayors for the Freedom to Marry, which is a nonpartisan organization of mayors who support gay marriage.

The national group says it has the support of 400 mayors from 39 states around the country, including Bardstown, Kentucky, mayor Bill Sheckles.

Fischer says gay and lesbian couples deserve the protections that only marriage can provide. He is in Dallas Friday for a meeting by the U.S. Conference of Mayors in Dallas.

The group is chaired by Kasim Reed of Atlanta; Julißn Castro of San Antonio; Michael Nutter of Philadelphia; Annise Parker of Houston; Greg Stanton of Phoenix; Eric Garcetti of Los Angeles; and Republican Mayor Kevin Faulconer of San Diego.
