Amidst the tears, hugs and cheers, they took to the streets of Santa Monica Blvd., and San Vicente Avenue in West Hollywood to celebrate the Supreme Court decisions on Proposition 8, California’s anti-same sex marriage amendment, and DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act. The courts rulings cleared the way for same-sex marriages to resume in the nations largest state, but the court sidestepped the larger question of whether banning gay marriage is unconstitutional. The next step is waiting for the Federal Appeals Court, which has at least 25-days to allow supporters of Prop 8, to ask the Supreme Court to rehear the case. If no motion or request is made by that time, same sex marriages can resume in California as soon as the hold is lifted. But what’s missing in this conversation is the African American same gender loving prospective. NoMoreDownLow takes to the streets of West Hollywood to get our reaction to the headlines in this Newsbreak.
