We asked Mike Paczesny, a Racine County Eye reader, to take this video of the LGBT community protesting Racine County Clerk Wendy Christensen’s decision to not issue marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples.

Meanwhile, federal Judge Barbara Crabb decided Friday afternoon — after the protest had already been held — to put stay her decision, effectively putting same-sex marriages on hold in Wisconsin, according to a story on Channel 12 WISN.
