Prop. 8 plaintiffs and Berkeley couple Kris Perry and Sandy Stier were married this afternoon by Attorney General Kamala Harris at San Francisco City Hall. The wedding took place shortly after the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals lifted a stay on the 2010 lower-court ruling that would clear the way for same-sex marriages, to begin immediately throughout California.Congrats to the great, brave, fighting couple!
Perry and Stier were at the head of the line that formed at San Francisco City Hall to obtain marriage licenses and Harris rushed to City Hall to perform the first marriage. According to media, including KQED News and the Los Angeles Times, the couple were the first same-sex marriage in California since 2008.
