Thousands of protesters including gay couples and many celebrities join together to show their anger on the gay marriage ban in California.

This is to protest against Proposition 8 in California, a state constitutional amendment that California will recognize marriage between a man and a woman only.

Gathered since Friday, a rally of more than 2,000 gay-rights advocated outside the gates of a Mormon temple with several stars — including James Cromwell, Patricia Clarkson, Anjelica Huston and Sean Penn — said they supported the protesters while walking the red carpet at the BAFTA L.A. Brittania Awards at Hyatt Regency Century Plaza Hotel.

Celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres, Rosie O’Donnell, Madonna and Melissa Etheridge vented their frustrations online, on TV, and onstage.
