It comes two days after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the invalidation of Proposition 8 and struck down the Defense of Marriage Act. Gay rights advocates, many congregated in San Francisco for Pride Week, have been celebrating. What do the court's decisions mean for gay and lesbian couples here in California and beyond? Also, how do the SCOTUS rulings on affirmative action and voting rights impact California?
