COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -
A gay U.S. soldier who was booed during a Republican presidential debate in 2011 has joined the effort to overturn Ohio's ban on same-sex marriage.
Leaders of FreedomOhio, a group seeking a reversal of the ban, said Friday that Stephen Snyder-Hill will help lead outreach efforts.
Snyder-Hill had asked the GOP candidates in 2011 if they would reinstate the ban on openly gay troops. He was booed for the question, which he recorded while deployed in Iraq.
FreedomOhio wants to overturn the 2004 state constitutional amendment that banned gay marriage. Supporters started collecting signatures last year to place their own constitutional amendment on the ballot either later this year or in 2014.
The measure would not require churches and other religious institutions to perform or recognize a marriage.
