Thousands celebrate Dublin Pride after marriage vote 

Supporters for same-sex marriage wait for the result of the referendum at Dublin Castle on May 23, 2015 in DublinTens of thousands of revellers created a carnival atmosphere on the streets of Dublin on Saturday in the first gay Pride parade since Ireland became the first country in the world to vote for same-sex marriage. The march was led by a float with a banner that read, “the future is equal”, while participants waved rainbow flags under the overcast Dublin sky. The parade was given added significance after the US Supreme Court ruled Friday that gay marriage is a legal right in all 50 states.
