DALLAS (AP) - Two men have been arrested after they were denied a marriage license by the Dallas County clerk and launched a protest.

Mark Jiminez and Beau Chandler say they were protesting Texas’ ban on gay marriage, passed in 2005. The two men went to the clerk’s office Wednesday afternoon to file for a marriage license they knew they wouldn’t receive.

When they were denied, Jiminez and Chandler sat down and handcuffed their arms together.

They were eventually led out by Dallas sheriff’s deputies.

Dallas television station WFAA reports that Chandler signed paperwork Thursday to change his legal last name to Jiminez, even though they weren’t married.

Six states have legalized gay marriage. Voters in 31 states have rejected it.
