Today’s Supreme Court ruling to legalize same-sex marriage is a historic moment for equality and human rights in America. I am so grateful for the positive impact this verdict will have on the lives of Yelp employees, our millions of users, and small business owners across the U.S.
I’m proud to add my voice to the chorus of others speaking out in celebration and support of this ruling, and I applaud the numerous individuals and organizations who fought for so long to make this change possible.
This ruling couldn’t have come at a better time. In San Francisco, we’re getting excited to celebrate the culmination of Pride Week on Sunday, June 28th, by marching in the SF Pride parade with more than 500 Yelp employees and family members. We’re proud to stand alongside many other Bay Area companies and residents to show our support for marriage equality and LGBT rights.
If you’re in San Francisco, come out and join us. Either way, keep an eye out for updates from the event on our social media channels to share in what is sure to be a pretty impressive party. #YelpPride2015
