Big Gay Race 5K Makes Its Way Through Minneapolis
One of the biggest issues on Minnesota's ballot this fall besides President is the marriage amendment, and whether to put it in the state constitution that marriage is between one man and one woman.
Both sides are ramping up efforts, and it showed Saturday. Fall is normally the time of year when orange pops up in yards all across Minnesota, but this year there's another shade of orange that is becoming more visible.
Saturday morning down around the Stone Arch Bridge, the second annual Big Gay Race made its way through Minneapolis.
Jacob Frey, a straight opponent to the gay marriage amendment, founded the race in 2011. It is not only meant to raise awareness, but also money.
Minnesotans United for Marriage Equality expects to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars from this event. The most recent KSTP/Survey USA Poll shows the amendment is favored to pass 50 percent to 43 percent.
