First Same-Sex Weddings in Los Angeles County

*Update 6-17-08 A very sweet and happy Jennifer Ramos and Antionette Bantigue wait to be issued their marriage license outside of the County of Los Angeles Registrar Recorder / County Clerk building in Norwalk, California June 17, 2008


A lesbian couple, Robin Tyler and Diane Olson celebrated the first official same-sex marriage in Los Angeles County Monday evening at the Beverly Hills Courthouse. They had tried to obtain a marriage license at the courthouse 5 times since 2004 and were denied each time. They were clearly very happy and emotional, and were joined by friends, family, their Attorney Gloria Allred, a Rabbi, the very aggressive and large contingent of media, and a handful of protesters.

Did you see Mr.Sulu from Star Trek? I guess he was the first person to get his marriage license in West Hollywood. This story has been front page news everyday in SF since it broke.

I can't believe Gloria Allred was there.
