OKUN AND ETHINGTON LEAVE CITY HALL IN SAN FRANCISCO.
Eric Ethington (L) with twin Sophia and partner Doug Okun with twin Elizabeth, leave San Francisco's City Hall after receiving their marriage license, February 13, 2004. San Francisco officials married a steady stream of gay and lesbian couples in a "first-in-the-nation" move that defies state law recently passed by voters calling marriage a union of man and woman.
