200 Plus Gays and Lesbian Couples Marry in Ohio Mass Wedding

More than 200 gay and lesbian couples held a mass wedding at the Cleveland City Hall in Ohio on Sunday to protest the state’s constitutional ban against same-sex marriage. An effort is currently underway to change the law through referendum. “[E]ven though in the eyes of the state this isn’t legal, to us, this is a wedding, and this is a way that we can commit to each other,” Jamie Moore, who waited six years to marry her partner, told a local Fox affiliate. Another attendee, Kathy Mauricio added, ” It’s legal to me, and no one can take that away from us.” Watch a local news segment: via Think Progress
