Rainbow flags line the courtyard at San Francisco's City Hall building on June 26, 2012. The US Supreme Court struck down The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), and declared that same-sex couples who are legally married deserve equal rights to the benefits under federal law that go to all other married couples.
