Expressing anger and disappointment, thousands of gay-rights advocates marched across the nation Saturday in largely peaceful protests against California's passage of an initiative banning same-sex marriage.

Protests were held nationwide, including this one in Wichita.

This was the city's third protest.

Some in the crowd said they hoped to remind president -elect Obama of his vow to do away with the defense of marriage act.

A representative of the proposition 8 campaign said the protests would have little effect because the election is over and prop 8 has already passed.
