In celebration of October's National Coming Out Day, mass same-sex "weddings" were held on the steps of the Texas capitol in Austin and at Founders' Plaza in downtown Dallas.
"Mass," though, may be a little too strong. Ten couples tied the knot at the Dallas event. An Austin news outlet reported "more than a dozen" same-sex "marriages" were performed there. This is not exactly a movement, maybe just a small protest. And, none of these "marriages" are legal. Texans amended their constitution in 2005 to define marriage as between one man and one woman.
