LOS ANGELES (CBS) — Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and his band aren’t only battling it out for Best Pop Duo/Group at this year’s Grammys, they are also battling for gay rights.

Levine recently told People Magazine that they changed the location of their upcoming Grammy afterparty because of a local Mexican restaurant’s stance on anti-gay marriage.

The singer said the unnamed eatery’s owners supported Prop 8 which made gay marriage in California illegal.

“We used to go to this Mexican restaurant to celebrate after the Grammys but the place supported the movement to make gay marriage illegal [in California] so we bailed on that,” Levine told People.

Levine, whose brother is gay, has been a gay and lesbian activist, appearing recently on the cover of “Out” magazine and supporting the NO H8 campaign.
