Activists march during a rally in response to the California Supreme Court's ruling regarding Proposition 8 in West Hollywood, California May 26, 2009. California's supreme court backed a ban on gay marriage on Tuesday, upholding a voter-approved proposition defining marriage as between a man and a woman, but said the marriages last year of 18,000 same-sex couples were still legal.
