Lead plaintiffs Derek Kitchen (L) and Moudi Sbeity kiss outside the courthouse after a federal appeals court heard oral arguments on a Utah state law forbidding gays and lesbians from marrying in Denver April 10, 2014. The hearing was the first at a regional U.S. appeals court since a Supreme Court ruling last June forced the federal government to extend benefits to same-sex married couples in states where gay marriage is legal.
