Video Shows Gay Couples Being Denied Marriage Licenses

In the midst of the gay marriage debate, politics can make some forget about the actual couples and families who are affected. Now there's a new campaign whose purpose is to change that: the Campaign for Southern Equality's two-week-long WE DO Campaign, ending today. Participating same-sex couples have been joined with their families and supporters as they request marriage licenses in North Carolina and then are denied, as the state's laws don't support gay marriage. This peaceful resistance is raising awareness about marriage equality ahead of a proposed amendment to the state constitution banning same-sex marriage that's coming up in May.

Along with her partner of 30 years, Reverend Kathryn Cartledge has been involved in the campaign. She says, "I have lived an authentic life, and I am convinced that only love can change the heart of someone who thinks I am less than equal." Above, see the emotional film of the couples tearfully asking for their marriages to be recognized by the state before being turned away.

Even though I knew they knew they'd be denied, it still made me cry. Look at these beautiful families, how is it fair that they don't have the same rights as everybody else?
