A Florida condominium association is reversing a policy that allowed only singles and husband-and-wife couples to buy or lease units in the complex after an uproar from gay rights activists.

The Casa Di Amici Condominium Association Inc. held a special meeting Thursday to amend the rule previously approved on July 17, reported the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

Outrage over the decision put the quiet condo complex in the public eye, generating not only local attention, but media attention from across the country. LGBT advocates claimed the the policy was discriminatory against gay couples, who cannot legally marry in Florida.
