SAN ANTONIO - Nearly 100 people came to Milam Park in support of the Light the Way to Justice March and Rally Tuesday night. 

All were supporters of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community. 

And all hoped for one thing: to enjoy the same freedoms and opportunities as everyone else. 

Isabella and her wife, Tonya Perkins, tied the knot last year in Boston. They made their relationship official because they want to start a family.

“At least we can have the same last names for our children, but that’s a lot of things people take for granted, and I don’t understand why we have to be cheated,” said Perkins.

The march for marriage equality just wasn’t in San Antonio, but nationwide. 

San Antonians started at Milam Park and marched to the Bexar County Courthouse. 

The rally ended with a candlelight vigil.

Dressed as a bride, Angel Moreno hopes to one day be able to marry whomever she wants.

“Me being a transgendered person, I feel like if I want to dress up in white in a veil, than I should be allowed to,” said Moreno, standing with friends.

The rally was put on by GetEqual Texas. If you would like more information about the group or how to get involved, visit their website.
