We're SO proud of these two brave men for standing up, not only for what they believe in, but for what is undeniably RIGHT!
Texas residents Mark Jiminez and Beau Chandler marched into a Dallas County clerk's office to request a marriage license on Independence Day. After they were inevitably denied (thanks to unfair laws plaguing Texas and plenty of other states), the couple handcuffed their arms together and sat down in protest of the state's 2005 decision to ban gay marriage.
Both were eventually removed by the police department, but their message was heard loud and clear — equality for all!
Since marriage isn't an option in Texas, Beau Chandler is reportedly in the process of legally changing his last name to Jiminez.
That still doesn't give them the rights and privileges that married heterosexual couples enjoy. However, we have full faith that this couple and every other same-sex couple will be getting those rights in the future because, like it or not, CHANGE is coming!!!
