Pittsburgh's 2014 Pride celebration took place just weeks after the state's ban on same-sex marriage was overturned by a federal judge. No surprise, then, that on June 15 Downtown's streets sometimes resembled a giant wedding party (with entertainment provided by Chaka Khan); earlier that day, Mayor William Peduto presided over the wedding of some 19 couples.

It wasn't all marital bliss, however: One Pride participant was arrested under murky circumstances during an altercation involving anti-gay demonstrators and Pittsburgh police. That story was emerging as this issue was going to press: See our online coverage at www.pghcitypaper.com/blogs/Blogh.
