Same-Sex Marriage Rally in Cincinnati, Ohio
- taliaday, CNN iReport producer
Many state and local news outlets covered the rally. By my count, there were only two counter protesters who remained quiet and peaceful as the pro-equality crowd passed them by. The police presence was notable in and around the park. Attendees of the rally were from Cincinnati and the surrounding areas.
The rally was upbeat and fun. It mixed speakers and music. Some of the plaintiffs from the Ohio and Kentucky cases took to the stage to thank the crowd for the support they have received. Directors from Equality Ohio and Equality Michigan revved up the crowd and a group of supportive clergy spoke about the love in religion.
Another rally is being hosted by Freedom to Marry Ohio at Fountain Square in Cincinnati on Wednesday as the hearings are happening. These hearings are being reported as some of the biggest marriage equality events since DOMA was partially struck down in 2013. It's only a matter of time before marriage equality is back in front of the Supreme Court for another win!!
