What Does Love Look Like? 15 Snaps From The Supreme Court

Here at R29, we know that love comes in many different forms — and there's no better place to see proof of that right now than outside the Supreme Court, as justices this week began hearing cases challenging the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8. [Editor's note: According to the New York Times, five Supreme Court justices have questioned the constitutionality of DOMA, the law that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman.]
We headed to the scene to get a glimpse of what the protests look like on the ground, where we witnessed heated arguments between protestors, heartwarming displays of encouragement and support, and a literal media zoo. (And, naturally, we couldn't help but catch the occasional style snapshot.) Click through for a firsthand look at what might just be a watershed moment in the battle for marriage equality.
