Those weddings in 2004 may have preceded actual weddings in Massachusetts by a few months. But Massachusetts' Supreme Judicial Court had orderd marriage equality months before that. Marriage equality did not begin in SF.

"Edge" Florida .... SHAME ON YOU !!!

Referring to Cleve Jones merely as "a personal friend of Harvey Milk" displays an ignorance of gay history and politics that should have you guys hanging your heads in SHAME.

In 2004, then San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom opened the marriage equality floodgates when he took the law into his own hands and began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. This led to the California State legislature legalizing gay marriage a few years later, until Proposition 8, a voter approved ban on same sex marriage became law in 2008.
Actually, marriage was legalized in California by their Supreme Court in 2008.
