Court Ruling Expected to Boost Minneapolis Gay Pride Turnout
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A large turnout is expected for the Minneapolis gay pride parade following the landmark Supreme Court ruling that said gay couples can marry anywhere in the country.
Minneapolis is shutting down several main streets downtown in preparation for Sunday's parade.
The parade starts at 11 a.m. Street closings will remain in effect until about 3 p.m.
Reports say the parade could draw a record crowd following Friday's Supreme Court ruling legalizing same-sex marriage.
Other U.S. cities also expect massive turnouts. Organizers of San Francisco's Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Parade expect about 1 million revelers.
Minnesota legalized gay marriage in 2013.
