CaptureHOUSTON, TX – Love is in the air on Valentines Day, as many express their love for one another.  Some with ultimate expression of their devotion, a marriage license. But some, at least in Texas, can`t.

“This is the reality of it. I can`t be treated like other people in this country.  I can not be treated like someone who bleeds the same way as me, was born in this country.  I`m not treated fairly.” said Tamira Augustine who was denied a marriage license.

That`s why a group of gay activists marched for marriage equality. They came together to fight for the right to marry.  The same rights that exist in some other states, but not in Texas.

But one couple sees a silver lining.  They’re competing for a $5,000 prize from the ACLU to hold their very own “Big Gay Illegal Wedding.”

While it may not be legit here in the lone star state, these guys need your vote to celebrate their love for each other.

And here we thought love was from the heart but clearly Texas legislatures still hold the key.
