boston- gay marriage anniversary. may 17.












i took the photos outside boston city hall (with a hurriedly bought disposable plastic camera) in 2004 on the day same sex marriage was legalized in massachusetts. here, and throughout the state, the first gay couples in u. s. history to get the legal right to marry were lining up to get their licenses.
the indoor photos are are party pics of a husband and husband who were married a few months earlier in san francisco, when the city, without state sanction, began issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples.
