Sunday, June 15, 2014, was a very special day for some same-sex couples in Pittsburgh. Mayor Bill Peduto presided over several same-sex marriages downtown. Sunday was also PrideFest in Pittsburgh, so these marriages were met with a huge celebration. Some of the couples who were married even rode on floats in the Pride Parade. The Mayor wanted to be a part of the annual Pride celebration in Pittsburgh, and certainly found a memorial way to participate in the weekend.
