August 2013

The United States Supreme Court removed two major barriers to marriage equality with its decisions in Hollingsworth v. Perry and U.S. v. Windsor on June 26, and the Ninth Circuit closed the last barrier to marriage for same-sex partners in California on June 28, when it lifted its stay on enforcement of the U.S. District Court’s opinion that Proposition 8 is unconstitutional. The Perry marriage ceremony was celebrated immediately afterward, and many more marriages will follow in California.
