On this historic day when marriage is for all across the land, it’s worth noting that it started with a single marriage performed by Mayor Gavin Newsom in this building in 2004. Last night the Civic Center which has seen the marriage of Marilyn Monroe to Joe DiMaggio (1954) and the assassination of Mayor George Moscone and Harvey Milk (1978) was lit up with pride. Time to rejoice and to celebrate our city, country, and humanity and all the hard work that went into creating this day. The SCOTUS ruling is just in time for the official gay pride march tomorrow in SF. Tonight is the annual Dyke March.
March on, brothers and sisters!
