Video Interlude: Philadelphia Celebrates Today’s Historic Supreme Court Ruling In Favor Of Marriage Equality

Show the love!

To celebrate today’s historic Supreme Court ruling, Visit Philadelphia released this video to congratulate America on marriage equality.

In 2004, Philadelphia became the first destination in the world to broadcast a gay-themed television commercial, Philadelphia – Get Your History Straight and Your Nightlife Gay®—
a campaign that went on to garner international awards and recognitions for Visit Philadelphia.

In 2015, over Fourth of July weekend, Philadelphia will mark the 50th Anniversary of the Gay Rights Movement, with a re-enactment of the Reminder Day demonstrations in front of Independence Hall, a wreath-laying ceremony at the historic marker that acknowledges the site of the demonstrations, panel discussions, a festival, concerts and more.

Today, the City of Brotherly Love is a welcoming place for people from around the world, and we’re thrilled to commemorate the historic Supreme Court ruling.
