If you were following the news yesterday, then you heard about the landmark case being heard by the Supreme Court of the United States. In the case Hollingsworth v. Perry, SCOTUS will rule on the legality of California’s Proposition 8 (passed in 2008) which amended the California constitution to define marriage as only between a man and a woman. The ruling is particularly significant because it will have broad implications for other states who have passed similar laws.

No big surprise here, we at BYT are big supporters of gay rights and what we see as the inevitable march towards marriage equality in this country. And we were also thrilled to capture all these shining faces here in Washington, D.C., bearing witness history in the making.
