Celebrating their fifth

Gay couples who brought the landmark lawsuit that led to the first legalized gay marriages in the United States at reunion in Newton Mass, May, 17, celebrate their fifth anniversaries, five years after Massachusetts became the first state to legalize gay marriage. The California Supreme Court’s recent upholding of Prop 8 is a setback, but LGBT rights groups and supporters vow to keep up the fight for full, basic civil rights for all.
