Equality: it's a word few think twice about, but today it's what over 300 people marched for.

Trevor Spoehr said today was his first time marching, "I'm gay myself, and I support all the rights that we are supposed to be entitled to."

After this month's controversial rulings on same-sex marriage in Wisconsin, many like Spoehr felt it was especially important to march today.

"When I found out Wisconsin was going to have gay marriage legalized we were all jumping for joy," said Spoehr, "Then they took it away again. It was just like a slap in the face."

Because of the hold now placed on same-sex marriages, a celebration of love was added to today's schedule. The ceremony allowed people to declare their love and commitment to each other in front of hundreds.

"What needs to happen for Wisconsin is someone needs to get into office who truly believes that we deserve equal rights," said Spoehr.
