Wearing all white and ringing bells, Utah's married gay couples, and others from surrounding states, stretched for a full city block at the head of the 2014 Pride Parade, trailing a massive float carrying among others Michael Ferguson and Seth Anderson, the first same-sex partners to wed in Utah.
Many carried signs with their names, their wedding date and the years they have been together. That included Jody Senninger and Connie Christensen of Heber. In their 18 years together, they have experienced their share of bigotry and hatred from family members, neighbors and employers.
"They think it is a choice," said Senninger. "Love is not a choice."
