Jimmy Nguyen speaks with gay marriage supporters at a West Hollywood victory rally on June 26, 2013, after the U.S. Supreme Court issued that day two big wins in same-sex marriage cases. The Supreme Court struck down a key part of the Defense of Marriage Act, and also rendered invalid (on procedural grounds) Proposition 8 in California. A politician (incoming Los Angeles city controller Ron Galperin), a rabbi, an activist, straight allies and gay and lesbian couples talk about their reaction to the court wins and the return of same-sex marriage freedom to California.
