EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE)- Protesters gathered around the nation and in Evansville on Saturday.

On election day, California voters approved a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

The ban is known as Proposition 8.

The passing of the ban has triggred heated protests across the country, including right here in the Tri-State.

Same-sex marriage supporters planned simultaneous rallies in all 50 states.

One hundred people stood out in the cold in front of the Centre to get their message out.

Similar protests were held in Indianapolis, St. Louis, and Louisville.

It's estimated 100 million people took part in the protest in more than 300 cities.
