Gay Marriage Starts Today in California

Hosted by

Last month, the California Supreme Court declared a state ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, even though it was passed by the voters eight years ago. In California today, county clerks will be issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples, who are expected to come here from all over the country. TV news vans are already surrounding San Francisco City Hall, where this afternoon, Mayor Gavin Newsom will marry a lesbian couple who’ve been together for more than 50 years. Bob Egelko covers the issue for the San Francisco Chronicle.
