Local gay couples affirmed their commitment to each other in a same-sex wedding celebration Sunday. A dozen gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender couples stood together at Resurrection Metropolitan Community Church to be married or renew their vows. Religious leaders from Christan, Jewish and Buddhist congregations presided over the ceremony.

The couples say they hope one day the state of Texas will recognize their unions as legal.
