Two men who were ejected from the Nashville Pride Festival in 2015 while protesting the event have appealed their case to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, the Nashville Post reports. John McGlone and Jeremy Peters claim their First Amendment rights were violated when they were asked to leave and later threatened with arrest while they yelled at festival-goers with bullhorns. An attorney for Metro told the court that the decision to move the preachers across the street was a “reasonable time, place and manner restriction.”
