Gay Marriage
- New York 04/27/2015 (AP)

Advocates who want to see same-sex marriage made legal across the country rallied in support of their cause in Times Square the day before the Supreme Court hears legal arguments over whether it should be.

Elected officials joined members of the clergy in telling the crowd that it was time for the judges to decide that states can't define marriage as only between a man and a woman. Same-sex marriage is legal in 36 of 50 states.

Those in attendance held signs saying "Marriage freedom means freedom for everyone." Onlookers passing through Times Square also stopped to listen.

The arguments are being made at the Supreme Court in Washington on Tuesday. The cases at issue come from Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee.
