Today and tomorrow, March 26 and 27, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments on two cases related to marriage equality. California’s Proposition 8 goes before the court on Tuesday; the Defense of Marriage Act will be heard on Wednesday. Both cases will shape the future of gay equality marriage in the United States.

There are a series of events and rallies organized to gather support. The front entrance of the Supreme Court is at 1 First Street NE.

The District of Columbia is one of 10 U.S. states or jurisdictions where same-sex couples can marry; the others are Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Maryland, Iowa and Washington. Rhode Island and New Mexico recognize out-of-state same-sex marriages. Illinois and Minnesota may pass marriage equality laws in the near future.
