Supporters gather at a demonstration celebrating the California Supreme Court's decision overturning a ban on same-sex marriages held in West Hollywood, California on May 15, 2008. The court found that California laws limiting marriage to heterosexual couples are at odds with rights guaranteed by the state's constitution. Opponents of gay marriage vowed to contest the ruling with a statewide ballot measure for a constitutional amendment to ban gay marriages. REUTERS/Phil McCarten (UNITED STATES)
