If and when the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals hands down a ruling in the three marriage equality cases — including a case from Texas — in which the court heard oral arguments on Jan. 9, Day of Decision rallies will be in Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, Houston and San Antonio — whichever way the court rules.

The rallies will begin at 6 p.m. the day the ruling is issued.

The Dallas rally will be held at Cathedral of Hope-UCC church, 5710 Cedar Springs Road. Plano couple Mark Phariss and Victor Holmes, one of the two plaintiff couples in the Texas marriage equality case, are expected to be at the Dallas rally, along with Resource Center Communications and Advocacy Manager Rafael McDonnell.

The Fort Worth event will be held at Celebration Community Church, 908 Pennsylvannia Ave.
