Philadelphia judges officially wed 13 same-sex couples today as part of the Philadelphia Pride Parade.
Same-sex marriage was legalized in Pennsylvania in May by a federal district judge's ruling on a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania on behalf of couples who wanted their out-of-state marriage licenses recognized at home.
"If I could be assigned to spend the next eight years doing eight hours a day of weddings, I would do it," said Philadelphia Common Pleas Court Judge Ann Butchart after performing ceremonies for the couples at the parade today.
