Gay marriage on float planned for Rose Parade

December 30, 2013 5:41:21 PM PST
In what will be a first, a same-sex couple will be married on a float during the 125th Rose Parade.

Danny LeClair and Aubrey Loots say they are honored to have so many people witness their ceremony, but not everyone is happy about the wedding.

Savecalifornia.com, a group that supported Prop 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage, is calling on a boycott of the parade for what it calls a "promotion of homosexual marriage to children."

However, the opposition isn't stopping the couple from enjoying their pending nuptials.

"We're not dissuaded or discouraged. We're absolutely grateful that we can be part of this conversation and really educate people," said groom Danny Leclair.

You can watch the Rose Parade on New Year's Day ABC7 -- coverage begins at 8 a.m. on Wednesday.
