Today was also notable for all the religious organizations that held banners and marched in the pride parade.
One group that stuck out to many spectators were Mormons, who held signs voicing their support for gay couples. One sign even saying "Sorry, we're late." Spectators say it was a surprise to see so many religious groups involved this year.
"I’m glad there's a lot more churches out there that want to take part and want to be just as supportive as everybody else is right now."
The Mormon group's organizer says this is the first time they've been permitted by the Church of Latter Day Saints to voice their personal opinions on the topic, and organizers say they've already walked in the Seattle and Portland pride parades.
