TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)-The Supreme Court ruling stirred up some reaction in Topeka.

Supporters of the ruling gathered on the south side of the Statehouse holding signs that say "One Step Closer" and "Equal Means Equal."

Stephanie Mott, the State Chair for the Kansas Equality Coalition spoke at the rally and said this is a small step forward towards big changes and supporters agreed.

"I think we are well on our way to really having equality, to really having justice and to really ending discrimination," said supporter, Amelia Markham.

"I would say its been a long time coming, actually it shouldn't have been coming at all, it should have been like this since day one, if you ask me but you know change happens, take it all in stride," said supporter Kyle Grazow.

KU Law Professor Rick Levy says this only affects states that legally recognize gay marriage. He also states that it may cause challenges for Kansas laws over gay marriage in the future.
