Hundreds of people took to the Corpus Christi Bayfront Sunday afternoon to march for marriage equality. The group shouted, "what do we want! Equality! When do we want it? Now!" Corpus Christi residents along with members of the LGBT community joined together for the cause. Those who marched say they want equal protection under the law that is offered to traditional couples. They're asking for the state of Texas to allow same sex marriage and they're hoping this march will catch the attention of local lawmakers.
Kerry Cockerham said, "so many people have stereotypes who have never been around someone who's bi sexual or gay and they don't know how to react. They don't know we are the same as everyone else and we want the same things. We love our children, support our family, and support our community."
Recently Senator Juan Hinojosa from McAllen introduced a bill to the state legislature that would permit same sex civil unions in Texas. If the bill passes, Governor Rick Perry would still have to sign it into law.
