Six-year-old protester in Utah: 'I asked Santa for marriage equality'

While driving through Utah on Christmas Eve, Lily Soloway, daughter of immigration attorney Lavi Soloway and his husband, Sebastian Dungan, stopped to protest outside the San Juan County courthouse.

"I asked Santa for marriage equality," read a protest sign held by Lily, age 6.

Posted to Lavi Soloway's Facebook page:

On Christmas Eve, we were driving through San Juan County, Utah. We stopped in the county seat, Monticello, where Lily staged a one-person protest against the County Clerk who refused to marry same-sex couples, despite multiple federal court rulings in recent days. As she put it, "boys should be able to marry boys, and girls should be able to marry girls, and everyone should be treated the same." She said, "it's not fair that some people can't get married. That should change, the way it did in California."
