Tom Privitere, Brian Edwards and their photographer Kristina Hill filed a lawsuit Wednesday against Public Advocate of the United States, a group that opposes gay marriage and offers support to politicians with the same message.
The couple claims the photo was copyrighted and that Public Advocate used it on its mailers without permission.
Public Advocate has not yet responded to BuzzFeed’s request for comment, but Brian Edwards explained why the couple decided to sue to NBC News:
