GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The message of marriage freedom continues to gain momentum across the state after gay rights groups rallied in Denver Monday.

Gay marriage supporters launched the Why Marriage Matters Colorado campaign for the Western Slope on the steps of the Old Mesa County Courthouse Wednesday.

A same sex couple, a local pastor and an LGBT activist shared their opinions as to why everyone deserve the right to true marriage, not civil unions.

"Marriage is a fundamental issue about love and commitment," said Dave Montez, executive director for One Colorado. "It really is the only thing that can provide the basic protections necessary in times of greatest need."

Gay rights groups in Denver said they're aiming to get freedom to marry out to voters in 2016.
