Good news: This week, on July 25 2014, a three-judge panel of the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled in favor of same-sex marriage couples, agreeing with Utah District Judge Robert Shelby’s landmark December ruling that Utah’s gay marriage ban violates fundamental constitutionally guaranteed rights.

Photo: Back in February of 2010 the Grannies showed up in bride and groom costumes at the San Mateo County Clerk’s office joining same-sex couples requesting marriage licenses.

The Grannies joined thousands of people celebrating with rallies across the country.
