Area gay, lesbian, couples applaud Supreme Court rulings

Rochester, NY -- Married gay and lesbian couples in our area are thrilled with today's U.S. Supreme Court same sex marriage rulings, including the decision striking down the Defense of Marriage Act -- which denied federal benefits to gay couples.

Anne Tischer, with the local Pride at Work Alliance chapter, says the ruling means many spousal benefits will now be extended to her and her wife.

The Pride at Work Alliance is planning a celebration rally at 5 p.m. at Rochester's Washington Square Park.
