Crowd celebrates overturning of gay marriage ban....by Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO — A cheerful and noisy crowd is gathering in San Francisco's Castro neighborhood (Z; the gay neighborhood) to celebrate Wednesday's ruling by a judge overturning California's same-sex marriage ban.
After the ruling by Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn Walker, people throughout the neighborhood met in cafes and bars for small celebrations. In one bar, patrons toasted with glasses of champagne.
Coffee shops throughout the area were also packed as area residents watched the news on television.
With the crowd gathering on the street having grown to an estimated 400 early Wednesday evening, many were chanting and waving rainbow and American flags.
The celebration in the Castro neighborhood comes just before a planned march and rally to City Hall.
So, would you be clicking champagne glasses? And, ya, I can't believe I posted that picture, either. Sorry. HERE is more. Yahoo homepage news says this "reignites HOPE" :-)
