PHOTOS: Rhode Island Marriage-Equality Battle Brings Out Young Voices, Bad Grammar

PHOTOS: This week, Rhode Islanders on both sides of the marriage-equality issue went to the Statehouse in Providence to have their voices heard. Among those who testified was 12-year-old Matthew, who told lawmakers, “If you came to our house, you’d feel the love we have for one another.”  Outside the hearing, demonstrators for and against equality carried placards—including several that decried same-sex marriage as “inmoral.”

We admit we’re not always great on spelling on Queerty, but if we were going to march against people’s rights, we’d probably spellcheck our signs first. Just sayin’.

The House Judiciary Committee is set to vote on the marriage-equality measure next Tuesday, January 22.
