A parade for equal rights in Dallas was a peaceful, proactive affair for those who participated.

Hundreds of people gathered in downtown Dallas Saturday to fight for equality. Well, not fight exactly, more like peacefully demonstrate.

The rally came a day after New York Governor Andrew Cuomo legalized marriage in the Big Apple.

He labeled his decision a "new level of social justice," which many Texans say they feel obliged to as well.

Fashion photographer Matt Spencer said he thinks Cuomo's decision is a human rights victory in general.

Spencer is participating in a world-wide project called "I am equal."

He found many colorful subjects for his work at Saturday's rally.

The antithesis of protesters on the scene, possible photographed by Spencer, is Governor Rick Perry who is opposed to gay marriage.
