Adorable Couple Wins Top Honors In GayCities Photo Contest–And A Trip To San Francisco


This photo submitted by Jim Williams (left) and Zach Lamm (right) is the winner of the annual GayCities #FeelTheLove Challenge, sponsored by our friends at San Francisco Travel.

The couple wins a trip to the city on the bay for a two-night stay at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis’ 2,000-square-foot Presidential Suite–plus cocktails in the luxuriously remodeled View Lounge.

The shot was taken on the Nichols Bridgeway, which runs from Millennium Park to the Art Institute of Chicago on November 18, 2011, shortly after the couple received a civil union and two days before their 12th anniversary. It snapped by Jeff Williams (Birmingham, AL), who encouraged the couple to leap for joy.

Jim is a mobile app designer and Zach a market researcher. The two live in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago. They were legally married shortly after the state of Illinois ushered in marriage equality.

Congrats to the cute couple!
