Add comment on:Going to the Courthouse, Gonna TRY to get Married
Activists forced the hand of the County Clerk's Office of San Mateo County, California on National Freedom to Marry Day, February 12, 2010. Same sex couples tried to register for marriage licenses and were turned away. But far from being upset at the demonstration, San Mateo County workers were part of the event as well. They welcomed the rally on the steps of their office and with obvious sadness refused to grant licenses to same sex sex couples. Photos by Justin Miel are copyrighted.
