The gay activists even brought their own band, a lively eight piece ensemble including a trombone and accordion, to compete with the huge bagpipe-and-drum groups thundering up Manhattan.

Delaware Supreme Court confirms lesbian mom as parent: "The Delaware Supreme Court issued a ruling March 14 upholding the right of a woman to be identified as a 'de facto' parent of a child she had been raising with her former same-sex partner—a child the partner adopted but that the woman herself did not.
