SALT LAKE CITY — About 1,500 same-sex-marriage supporters rallied in Salt Lake City to hail a judge’s decision paving the way for gay weddings in Utah.
The crowd massed at the Salt Lake City-County Building Monday night, reported The Deseret News. The celebration came days after U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby declared the state’s same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional.
People at the rally sang along to a band, held signs saying “Love equals love” and waved rainbow flags. The newspaper reports one couple got married on the building steps.
Nearly 700 gay couples have obtained marriage licenses since Friday.
