Court Wins Draw Big Crowds To Gay Pride Parades

Gay Pride SC Court wins draw big crowds to gay pride parades

Gay rights supporters crowded parade routes in San Francisco, New York and other major U.S. cities Sunday to celebrate what once was unimaginable — two Supreme Court victories on same-sex marriage.

The high court gave celebrants one more reason to cheer Sunday when Justice Anthony Kennedy rejected a last-ditch effort by opponents to stop gay marriages in California.

Among the thousands at San Francisco’s event, now in its 43rd year, were scores of teenage girls, opposite-sex couples and families with children.

“You can feel the smiles,” Graham Linn, 42, of Oakland said as he stood on a three-foot-tall building ledge surveying crowds 10-deep on the sidewalks. “All around you there is a release. There is a vindication, and you can feel it.”

The biggest applause went up for the two newlywed couples whose legal challenge of Proposition 8 made it possible for Californians to wed.

    Who the hell would want to go to a gay pride parade unless your one of them or your kid is a 3 dollar bill.Now I visualize someone like Hitlary Clinton being the grandmarshall in a thong with boobs hanging over her big belly yelling"What difference does it make"

      Hi Edward,
      it is true why would anyone on their right mind bring their kids to watch these freaks, this is nothing to be proud or happy about. Our Country has lost it's morals a long time ago, but right now is in your face with the help of this dirty government.

      • Edwardkoziol says:

        Your right about the government and the worst is the Supreme Court John Roberts has become a tool for Obutthole using any loop hole he can to further thhe Obutthole cause.When a decision comes down and you know how those 2 Obutthole appointees the 2 porch monkey and that dried up old prune plus Bryar you know how they'll vote.So yes the government has gotten dirty maybe you should only serve 2 years on the court instead of a guaranteed lifetime appointment.

    Why anyone would the world to know they are freaks by participating in or supporting a queer parade is beyond me.
