It's been dubbed Decision Day, and celebrations are planned from New York to San Francisco to mark the Supreme Court rulings Wednesday that struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and California's Proposition 8.
Gay rights and civil rights groups have planned rallies to celebrate the ruling on DOMA that says married same-sex couples are entitled to the same rights as other married couples, and the procedural ruling on Proposition 8 that clears the way for same-sex marriages to resume in California.
In the Los Angeles area, a rally will be held and streets will be closed at 5:30 p.m. at San Vicente and Santa Monica boulevards in West Hollywood. "Wear red, white and blue to show your patriotism!" the notice on Marriage Equality in California Celebration's Facebook page says.
San Francisco plans a rally and celebration at 6:30 p.m. on the corner of Castro and Market streets organized by Day of Decision San Francisco.
