Ten couples that are either gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender were married Saturday during a rally at Youngstown State University.

Although the marriages won’t be legally recognized by the state of Ohio, they could be recognized at a later date if gay marriage is ever legalized in the state.

The rally was held in front of the Kilcawley Center on the Y.S.U. campus.

Grassroots organization Marriage Equality Ohio held the event.

“Whether we’re fighting for desegregation or whether we’re fighting for whatever cause we’re fighting for, we’re coming out because we care about it, and we’re standing up for what we support and sometimes it starts with one voice and then that one voice will spread to a crowd that we have here of 100 to 200 and then it just keeps growing,” said Adam Hoover with Marriage Equality Ohio.

Members of the group plan to continue rallying around Ohio until the issue of marriage equality is placed on the ballot.
