HARVEY VEONG: It's been a long time coming, and we weren't really sure if the Supreme Court would go that way, but so happy that they did. So we're excited to hear about that, and definitely-- especially because it's June, Pride Month, this is such tremendous news for our community here.

JOE HOLLENDONER: I think today is an important reminder that justice will always prevail but also that we have to continue to fight for it and that during this Pride Month and as the Black Life Matters movement continues, we just must not make the assumption that our rights will be freely given to us.

JODY RANKIN: I know a person that was actually fired for being gay, so this is amazing that, 20-some years later, this is happening.

ALISON BOYLE: Just so excited to see some good news finally in the midst of this crazy, crazy time in our country and in the world.

JAMES KELM: I'm excited for all the LGBT people living in places that didn't enjoy the protections that we already had here in California.
