Twelve-year-old Isak Atkins-Pearcy loves Legos, doughnuts, and fighting for what he believes in.

"I think in a world where everything is right, you could love anyone you wanted to," he said.

He's been fighting alongside his parents and with his junior high school's gay-straight alliance to defeat North Carolina's proposed constitutional amendment, Amendment One, which will be decided in the May 8 primary. Amendment One would place in the state constitution the following language: "Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state."

Meet Isak, and hear a fresh perspective on relationships from a young man full of conviction and love for his family.
