Aubrey Roots and Danny LeClair will be married in today’s Rose Parade in California on float sponsored by the Aids Health Foundation. For that reason, conservatives are urging a boycott of the event. reports that the American Family Association, which slammed A&E for suspending Phil Robertson, wants the Rose Parade to ban the gay couple.

The anti-gay group “Save California” has also called on people to protest the parade, notes 10 News.

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) also supports the boycott.

NOM Brian Brown told Fox News that Rose Parade viewers “will be exposed to the spectacle of men marrying men with… hugging and kissing.”

In response, AHF President Michael Weinstein released a statement: “Like all of our sponsors and float designers, AHF continues to help make the Rose Parade a premier event through original and creative expressions that connect to parade themes — as this float does.”
