San Francisco Day of Decision Marriage Equality Rally 6/26/13

Big Crowd

Hey all,

So we decided to head down from Sactown to The City for the big marriage equality rally last night. It was amazing – they closed the whole Castro down, and it filled up with people.

State Senator Mark Leno and the National Center for Lesbian Rights’ Kate Kendall spoke, along with a number of others, and then the music kicked in and it was a big street party.

But what we felt there, most of all, was love. It’s an amazing thing, suddenly being fully married and having the dark clouds of DOMA and Prop 8 lifted – and the sun shone in on what was an amazingly warm, clear evening in the Castro.

Everyone was smiling, laughing with each other. Some folks said “Happy Gay Day”, and the sense of community was unbelievable. There were folks of all shapes, sizes, colors, and orientations all mixed together.

In the words of Kate Kendall  “Fuck prop 8!”

Here are a few of our photos from the evening – enjoy!
