Same-sex marriage and domestic-partnership proponents gather at the capitol…

More than 1,000 people showed up today for "Equality Day," lobbying lawmakers and holding a noon rally to call for legalization of gay marriage, or, at least, a state-run domestic partnership registry. The latter bill is moving ahead, legislative leaders say, although so far, no one's saying when we'll see a floor vote in either the Senate or House.

Many in the large crowd were couples, like Mukilteo administrative assistant Erin Furnas, 23, and, on the left, her partner Brianna Bragg, a 19-year-old nanny.

Drawing a lot of attention in the crowd, however, were three of Seattle's Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence: from left: Sisters "Edith Morecock", "Charity Case" and "Daya Reckoning."
