Arizona Couples Competing in ACLU's "My Big Gay Illegal Wedding" Contest
Fifteen Arizona couples are competing in a contest hosted by the American Civil Liberties Union, in which couples can win money for a wedding in a state that recognizes gay marriage.
The couples have to be from a state that doesn't recognize same-sex marriages to participate in the "My Big Gay Illegal Wedding" contest, and about 200 couples from across the country have entered.
Out of the 15 Arizona couples, the hipster couple, Rafael and Humberto, have by far the most votes.
According to their profile, one of them (it doesn't say who) was born in Arizona, while the other was born in Mexico and brought to the United States when he was just 3, and is working thanks to the Obama Administration's deferred-action program.
If they won one of the $5,000 prizes, they want to have a Roaring Twenties-themed wedding near the ocean in California.
