A supporter carries a flag with colours that symbolize the gay and lesbian communities during a "No on Prop 8" rally in West Hollywood, California November 5, 2008. Opponents of Proposition 8 gathered to criticize passage of the initiative defining marriage as between one man and one woman. California and two other states voted in Tuesday's elections to ban same-sex marriage, overturning a right given to gays and lesbians in the liberal, trend-setting state just months ago in state court.
