The two women who were the first same-sex couple to be granted a marriage license in Washington state are grand marshals in the annual Seattle Pride Parade.

West Seattle couple Jane Abbot Lighty and Pete-e Petersen also stood on the Space Needle on Sunday morning to raise a giant marriage equality flag above the Seattle icon. The flag featuring a red equal sign is making its first appearance atop the Space Needle.
