It’s expected to be a supreme celebration Wednesday night.
On the heels of Supreme Court rulings that struck down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and paved way for gay marriage in California, bar owners in Boystown are preparing for larger than normal crowds -- even with Pride Week activities in full swing.
At Sidetrack a 16-foot banner was being printed Wednesday, to be hung on the bar's awning, according to a bar manager. “June 26, 2013 DOMA overturned. A more perfect union,” the banner reads. The bar also opened early at 2 p.m. in anticipation of early crowds wanting to get a jump on celebrating before a planned rally and march.
