WATCH: 5 Couples Protest in Mississippi for Marriage Equality

BY 

 

Five lesbian couples applied for marriage licenses in Missippi this week and, as expected, were denied. But they hope the protest will make a difference.

"We're here to apply for a marriage license," they are shown saying, and then getting denied one by one at the The Forrest County Circuit Clerk's Office, according to a report by WDAM.

Sara Bell joined the "We Do" campaign in the protest and explained her application to the clerks office this way: "It's what we have together and that we love each other that makes us a family, but this piece of paper would protect our family."

Watch a documentary-style video from the "We Do" campaign from the protest.
