Supreme Court ruling makes Pride parades historic, jubilant

SAN FRANCISCO (AP/KTRS) — Rainbows and good cheer will be out in force this weekend as hundreds of thousands of people pack gay pride events from New York City to Seattle, San Francisco to Chicago to celebrate a Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage.

The Pride parade in St. Louis steps off an noon on Sunday

Organizers of San Francisco’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Parade, just called “Pride,” expect about 1 million revelers. The New York City march expects more than 2 million spectators and the Pride parade in Seattle expects about half a million people.

Pride festivities started as a way to honor the 1969 Stonewall rebellion, when gay patrons stood up to a police raid at a bar in New York City.

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled last week that same-sex couples have the right to marry anywhere in the United States.
