We Asked Same-Sex ‘Marriage’ Supporters: How Do the Media Treat You?

SCOTUS protestors give mixed messages about the media.

Same-sex “marriage” activists aren’t happy with the media – because, as some argued, there isn’t enough support.

On April 28, the United States Supreme Court heard a controversial case, Obergefell v. Hodges, which questioned the constitutionality of same-sex marriage. During the arguments, hundreds of LGBT supporters of the case gathered outside. We asked them how they think the media treat gay “marriage."

Among the protestors, we spoke to a dressed-up “Sister Millie Terri” from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as well as a self-described “undocumented trans Latina” from the Queer and Undocumented Immigrant Project.
