VIDEO: Maine High School Student Organizes Marriage Equality Rally

Antonia Carroll, a 16-year-old high school junior, organized a marriage equality rally in Bangor, Maine that took place Sunday.

“What is the difference between a man and a woman getting married and two men or two women getting married?” she asked the crowd of about 60 attendees. “It’s that Y chromosome or lack thereof in one of the partners. Who cares about Y chromosomes?”

"We will not stop, and we will not give up until we have equality for all,” she added.

Carroll says she cried on election night when Question 1 passed. If this is a sign of our future, then a bright future we will have.
