The stars of the victorious fight for Gay Rights took center-stage during an especially significant San Francisco Pride Parade Sunday.

Like in years past, marriage remained a prevailing theme. This year, there was added reason to celebrate: more than 500 same-sex marriage certificates were issued during Pride Weekend at San Francisco City Hall following the defeat of Proposition 8, California’s ban on same-sex marriage, at the U.S. Supreme Court last week. 

The San Francisco Police Department estimated crowds at the parade to have exceeded 1 million. Maybe you’ll recognize some of the people in the parade. Maybe you’ll find yourself!
