Texas' first same-sex marriage was last month.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Alabama's gay marriage ban was unconstitutional and now plaintiffs in a Texas same-sex marriage case are urging an Louisiana-based federal appeals court to look east.



In a panel Wednesday, Congressman Joaguin Castro will join Ernest Herrera, of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, and same-sex couple Alex and Irene Galindo-Cantu to discuss support for equality in marriage in Texas' Latino community, according to an advisory.

The event is free and open to the public and is Freedom to Marry, Texas for Marriage, Equality Texas and Familia es Familia will host the event, which runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at the Guadalupe Theater (1301 Guadalupe St.).
