On Tuesday, the California Supreme Court upheld the state's Proposition 8 ban on gay marriage in a 6-1 decision; the ruling left intact the union of over 18,000 same-sex couples who married before Prop 8 passed in November. The night of the ruling, gay marriage advocates took to the streets across California and in major cities throughout the country.
The court's ruling marked the next phase in the battle over marriage, with gay rights activists vowing to take the fight to "win marriage back" to California voters in 2010. Protests lasted through the night, becoming early morning parties. Organizers said the festivities were proof that the movement has not been deterred.
