Demonstrators in support of gay marriage hold signs outside the statehouse Monday afternoon as the Massachusetts constitutional convention conducts a vote inside. The Legislature voted 105-92 in favor of an amendment banning gay marriage and introducing civil unions. The amendment must be affirmed again next year, and would go to a public vote in the fall of 2006.
