They shut down Market Street. During rush hour. Their message of marriage equality was definitely heard.

On Tuesday the Supreme Court will make an historical decision regarding the constitutionality of gay marriage. Here is SF, there is no shortage of  supporters for legalizing gay marriage, and they came out in droves tonight to express their opinion.

The March4Equality rally took place tonight starting at Market and Castro and marching all the way down the busiest street in town. The supporters waved rainbow flags, displayed signs saying “we deserve the freedom to marry”, and chanting “gay straight black white. marriage is an equal right!”

I was impressed by the number of people who came out. Not because I don’t think this cause has many supporters, but because I had no idea about it until I drove by and saw the road blocks.  Yes, they got the police to block off the road for their march. Now that’s impressive.
