Seattle Pride Parade

"Dykes on Bikes" lead in Seattle's 39th annual Pride Parade celebrating "Equality: Passed, Present and Future" with historic wins for same-sex marriage in 2012 and 2013. Washington voters approved Referendum 74, legalizing same-sex marriage in the state at the end of 2012, and last week the Supreme Court struck down the Defense Of Marriage Act, which extends federal benefits like Social Security survivor benefits, immigration rights and family leave to all legally married couples.
