DENVER — Supporters of same-sex marriage in Colorado are celebrating their legal victory but also trying to help advance their cause elsewhere.

Gov. John Hickenlooper and others, including software entrepreneur Tim Gill and representatives of the ACLU and NAACP, rallied Wednesday at the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

The gathering was sponsored by Why Marriage Matters Colorado. Director Wendy Howell says they not only wanted to celebrate marriage equality here but they also want to see same-sex marriage legalized across the country.

Gay marriage is legal in Colorado following 10th Circuit rulings against bans in Oklahoma and Utah and a federal court's ruling against Colorado's ban.
