Everyone in S.F. is still buzzing from the announcement of yesterday’s landmark victories. Now that DOMA is dead and Prop 8 is right there along with it, the road to equality is well underway and same-sex couples can begin to enjoy the legal benefits married heterosexual couples have.
Yesterday, the city was absolutely vibrant with the sounds, lights, and happy celebrations in honor of this historical marker. Everywhere from city hall to the Castro was jam-packed with pride, so we grabbed our shutterbug and hit the town to capture some poignant reactions to the news. What we we caught was nothing short of moving and we’ll warn you — you may want to have a box of Kleenex handy before clicking through, you will get misty-eyed.
