WEST HOLLYWOOD—A gay marriage rally was held in West Hollywood on Wednesday, June 26. The event was held to celebrate the Supreme Court’s ruling which ended DOMA and Proposition 8. The corner of Santa Monica and San Vincente Boulevard was filled with adulation and cheering people who carried rainbow flags.

 

DOMA is the Defense of Marriage Act which was enacted in 1996 that allowed states to refuse to recognize same-sex marriage preformed under the law of other states. Proposition 8 was a  California ballot proposition and a state constitutional amendment passed in November 2008 during state elections. The measure added a provision, Section 7.5 which provides that “only marriage between a man and woman is valid in California.”

 

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa had this to say about the rally in West Hollywood following the Supreme Court’s decision. “This morning equality triumphed everybody and the Supreme Court has spoken in favor of love, in favor of dignity, in favor of humanity. Proposition 8 is over and done with and thank God for that!”
