PHOTOS: Hundreds gathered in Times Square for a candlelight vigil organized by LGBT advocate David Mizner in advance of next week’s monumental Supreme Court hearings. “The week of March 24 will be a historic week for the LGBT community, family and friends. For two days on that week, the United States Supreme Court is hearing arguments on both the DOMA and Proposition 8 cases. Rarely has a time called for dignified reflections and ‘giving witness’ to the moment,” said Mixner. “Not acknowledging the importance of those hearings in our lives is unacceptable.”

Supporters of equality will continue to rev up for the big days at some 150 vigils, talks visits to Congressional offices and marriage bureaus, and more across all 50 states. For more details visit United for Marriage
