Gay Pride was riding high in New York City this weekend. Following the Supreme Court rulings in favor of Gay Marriage in the week ....... amongst other things the Supreme Court struck down the hated DOMA (Defence of Marriage Act) that defined marriage as between a man and a woman ........ Its removal leaves the door open to proper marriage equality in many states .......... so people on the Gay Pride parade were understandablly jubilant today .......... I saw these guys Marquis and Joseph kissing ........ when I spoke to them later and showed them the picture .... they were delighted .......... and said they would be happy to be on this blog and anywhere else because the photograph showed their love ...... and pride .......... :-))))))))))) XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

PS......... President Obama spoke to praise the Supreme Court Ruling in the same speech as he praised Nelson Mandelas fight for justice in South Africa : http://news.yahoo.com/video/obama-praises-gay-marriage-ruling-153300772.html

PPS......... The ANC government brought full marriage equality within 10 years of taking over from the Apatheid government in South Africa http://jaysays.com/2009/08/the-words-of-nelson-mandela-chosen-for-weho-gay-marriage-plaque/

"I am not truly free if I am taking away someone else’s freedom, just as surely as I am not free when my freedom is taken from me. The oppressed and the oppressor alike are robbed of their humanity." Nelson Mandela
