See all our photos from St. Louis Pride 2014 in our RFT slideshow.
Wedding bells were ringing this weekend as St. Louis celebrated its LGBTQ pride and the four gay couples who married in secret (and technically illegal) ceremonies in the mayor's office.

The newlywed couples spent their holiday weekend like the rest of St. Louis' gay, transgender and allied community: celebrating love at PrideFest St. Louis.

New husbands John Durnell and Richard Eaton rode in the pride parade Sunday with Mayor Francis Slay, who organized the top-secret nuptials for more than a year to directly challenge Missouri's Constitutional ban.



Though St. Louis won't be marrying any more gay couples unless a judge, a ballot initiative or a new law changes Missouri's ban on same-sex marriage, something about pride this year spurred several proposals, including this one spotted by the Riverfront Times Street Team:

Pride also inspired America's new favorite sign of celebration: twerking.

The St. Louis skyline went rainbow for the celebration, inspiring some of our new favorite images of the Gateway Arch:

intolerance is the new left. Quite sad from the days of "I may disagree with what you say, but I will defend to my death your right to say it." If you cannot debate the points, harass and annoy. You got nothing much to offer.

If Pride was year-round, it would not make them special. Their quests for rights is really a quest for special rights - redefining words. Not satisfied with the equal right to form a civil union, they wanted to co-op the word marriage. Words no longer mean anything. Words mean whatever we wish them to mean.
