SALINA, Kan. (AP) -- Salina Mayor Barb Shirley has joined a national group of mayors who support gay marriage.

Shirley's announcement Wednesday that she had joined Mayors for Freedom to Marry came six months after Salina voters repealed protections from discrimination for people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered.

The mayor says she has no tolerance for any type of discrimination, and she wants all people to have the same civil rights.

Shirley joins more than 350 other mayors across the country in the group. The Salina Journal reports (http://bit.ly/ZmBUQR ) she is believed to be the first mayor in Kansas to join the group.

In November, Salina residents voted to repeal anti-discrimination protections in the city's codes.
