When the Supreme Court issued its opinions in Perry and Windsor on Prop 8 and DOMA on Wednesday, June 26, 2013, it was a historic moment for our nation.

Alice join the Day of Decision Rally, where our community celebrated the decisions. Alice B Toklas LGBT Democratic Party Club, like much of our community, has been advocating for marriage equality for years.

Here is how we saw it. Photos from our members:
