Striking Down the Ban on LGBT Marriage

One June 26, 2015, a historic ruling by the Supreme Court said that to prohibit gay marriage is unconstitutional.  I was so excited about the ruling that I decided the best way I could celebrate was to do what I do best – take pictures.

I bought a bunch of foam core placards from The Scrap Exchange, some fun colored markers, and then set up shop outside Motorco Music Hall for their #decisionday party.

I asked revelers to share with me how they were feeling, or what they were excited about in regards to today’s ruling. I got some great answers, and got to see how my wonderful community responded to such a big moment. Some people made their own signs, and some used signs that others had created, saying “This is exactly how I feel!”  I took a picture of everyone who chose to participate in front of a pride flag with their made or chosen signs.

I hope you all enjoy looking at my little record of Durham! I had a great time meeting my fellow community members and getting to celebrate with such a passionate group, and will enjoy looking at these images for years to come as I remember this historic day.
