SF Pride

I finally emerged from the multimedia world I've been encompassed in lately to make some still pictures at this weekends Pride Parade.  

San Francisco is known for it's long line of history when it comes to Gay Pride and Marriage Equality. This weekends events got even more interesting after Wednesday's Supreme Court decision to dismissed Prop 8 and rule DOMA unconstitutional.

I was already looking forward to this year's festival, but after the rulings, this truly was the best place to witness this year's Pride weekend.

Here are a few snaps from the big black box that makes pictures, and a few from my phone as well.

This has to be my favorite rectangle I've made in a while.  Just waiting along the parade route.

Spent some time on the parade route with the lovely Elana and Marlene. So honored that these ladies are welcoming us in to tell their story. If you haven't seen the video Mike Kepka and I made, check it out here.

Following the parade I headed to City Hall where they had extended their hours allowing for same-sex partners to be legally married over the weekend. Marlene Gallo signs as a witness following the wedding of Matthew Pfeuffer and Michael Stoops.

The scene at City Hall was multiple couples getting married simultaneously wherever they could find floor space to stand and face each other. There were many Deputy Marriage Commissioners, dressed in black robes, spaced around the room waiting to declare "spouses for life."

I just want to go on the record and say that I am falling in love with San Francisco. Never have I lived in a city where you can be whoever you want to be, do whatever you dream of doing, support whoever you want to support, and rally behind a community that is living life to the fullest just like you are. Whether it's orange for the Giants, Red and Gold for the 49ers, Blue and Yellow for the Warriors or a rainbow for Pride, this city knows how to show it's support for its community.
