Matthew Lannon, 12, a sixth-grader at Wheeler School in Providence, testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee Thursday evening at the Rhode Island State House in favor of a bill to legalize same-sex marriage.

It was a family affair as the bill was sponsored by his aunt, state Sen. Donna Nesselbush, and Matthew’s two moms were there to lend their support as Matthew articulately urged the Committee to “choose love.”
