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.
