(CBS) – Same-sex marriage proponents made their views known Monday with a march that wound through downtown Chicago.
Two hundred and fifty came together in hopes of putting pressure on the U.S. Supreme Court, which is set this week to consider the constitutionality of restricting marriage to members of the opposite sex.
“We are demanding freedom and equality from the court,” activist Andy Thayer said before the march. “Justice concedes nothing without a demand.”
And so they marched, carrying their message and their rainbow flags through the Loop at rush hour. They found supporters along the way, including Jenny Drzewiecki, who said, “I feel that two people that love each other should be able to share their life together.”
