Love Wins in San Francisco

The atmosphere inside San Francisco City Hall was electric as we received the historic decisions from the Supreme Court together with our friends, loved ones, and community. The shouts and cheers of joy as the rulings were announced rang out throughout the rotunda, as we learned of the landmark decisions.

The end of Proposition 8 and DOMA marks a great turning point in our movement, propelling us forward until we reach full equality in all aspects of our lives nationwide. While equality remains an unfinished business, the momentum is now truly unstoppable. As our friends start making their wedding plans, we are reminded that these cases are about our very lives and the essence of who we are. Love wins.
