Dancing, cheering and toting placards, gay rights supporters took to the streets in huge numbers at annual gay pride parades across the United States on Sunday, with attendance boosted by recent Supreme Court rulings in support of same-sex marriage.
Gay pride celebrations were held in San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Seattle, Minneapolis and several other cities by marchers energized by the top court's rulings extending federal benefits to married homosexual couples and striking down a ban on same-sex marriages in California.
In San Francisco, two couples who sued to overturn the California ban led nearly 1 million people in one of the biggest parades in years. Some people carried signs that read "Thank you, Supreme Court!"
The two couples, Kris Perry and Sandy Stier and Paul Katami and Jeff Zarrillo, got married on Friday, hours after the ban was lifted.
On Sunday, crowds cheered as they rode through the parade in a baby-blue convertible with rainbow-colored cans dragging from the back of the car. Some in the crowd were dressed in rainbow colors, others wore bridal dresses and tuxedos.
In New York, Edith Windsor, whose lawsuit prompted the Supreme Court decision to grant gay couples federal benefits, was among the grand marshals leading New York's Gay Pride march down Fifth Avenue.

The DOMA Law was passed overwhelmingly by republicans and democrats in the house and senate and signed by a democrat president.
The California initiative that was passed directly by the people in direct democracy and was supported by over 70% of black voters.
Both laws were overturned by 5 unelected judges forcing their will over the will of the people.
I have said it before. Democrats/liberals/progressive never understand that the tactics and schemes they use on others to get to their political ends will one day be used against them.
In Russia, it’s called a “target-rich environment”.
36 But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father.
37 As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
38 For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark;
39 and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.
40 Two men will be in the field; one will be taken and the other left.
41 Two women will be grinding with a hand mill; one will be taken and the other left.
42 Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.
43 But understand this: If the owner of the house had known at what time of night the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and would not have let his house be broken into. 44 So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him.
In Russia, it’s called a “target-rich environment”.
a parade of one million? Hard to beat numbers like that. What a sad commentary on the direction of our country.
So true. Gay activists can’t change that.
No doubt the parades will degenerate into deviant exhibitionism contests.
It will eventaully become homosexual shame. And sooner rather than later.
“Dancing, cheering and toting placards”
That sounds like an scene in the 10th Commandments when Moses came down from the mountain with tablet and found the people doing that. Well we know what happen next..do we folks? =)
Nah, can't be. A bunch of freepers claim our Republic was destroyed and replaced with a "pure democracy" where an "absolutely majority" has "mob rule" control of govenrment. That's odd, because last time I checked, the majority of Americans did NOT vote for gay marriage, Obamacare, illegal alien amnesty, etc. Instead, a small bunch of elite politicians FORCED this stuff on the rest of us.
OMG the media is OBSESSED with men screwing other men and blacks. That’s it. Homos and blacks. OBSESSED!
golly, all 6 percent of americans turned out to gay parades- what a turnout
That homo ruling is a bummer for sure but ironically libs are outraged that the 5-4 SCOTUS overturned that part of the VRA removing chains binding the Southern states (voting ID laws ) after 90%+ of the GOP (congress) reauthorized it in 2006 under GWB. Only a few Rs voted against doing that then.
Scalia made the argument that it had to be overturned because congress was scared to change it in 2006 even though 40+ years had passed and there were no firehoses and dogs stopping blacks from voting in those states anymore.
So the SCOTUS steps in to reverse the congress.
Like giving illegals the vote, how many minorities votes did the GOP screwing the Red states in 2006 get the GOP in 2006, 2008 and 2012?? zero!
But now Grahamnesty says they have to do it again
Abraham himself could not find 10 righteous men in that wretched city.
I posted on another thread about how some people in my general neighborhood were on their way to or back from seeing the PARADE EVENT. It amazed me how people with small children apparently went to watch too. The local culture “celebrates” it. Small children are very impressionable and must be protected from this filth.
I’ll strongly object. Some of us have eaten.
However, from the description alone you can see the comparisons to the last days of Rome. These people are quite literally braindead.
I’d also like to point out something else interesting.
Hordes of homosexuals and assorted morons line the streets to celebrate a biologically nonsensical sham and perversion
Lots of media fawning and coverage
Largest political protest in history right now in Egypt to get rid of an Islamonazi dictator supported by our president.
No coverage at all
Gay pedophile given 40 years in jail.
Bought a child from a Russian mom.
He and his partner committed all sorts of vile acts on the child.
look at the freaks, billy. they think that because the state says they can marry, that it’s really a marriage.
RE: Gay pedophile given 40 years in jail.
Here’s one problem — Gays INSIST that homosexuality and pedophilia are TWO DIFFERENT orientations. One normal, the other not.
RE: It amazed me how people with small children apparently went to watch too. The local culture celebrates it.
Reminds of me of the New York gubernatorial campaign when Carl Paladino took Andrew Cuomo to task for taking his kids to the NYC gay pride parade where men were making out in public.
Guess what? Paladino was made out to look like the neanderthal, intolerant guy by the press and the media.
Needless to say, Paladino was crushed by Andrew Cuomo in the elections. It wasn’t even close.
Pretty ironic considering Andrew's dad ran against (and defeated) Ed Koch for the Gubernatorial primary with supporters putting leaflets on car windshields that said "VOTE FOR CUOMO, NOT THE HOMO".
