Couple marching against Prop 8 reaches SF

A state-wide trek to protest Proposition 8 reached its final destination Friday in San Francisco.

Valerie Paget and Tracie Jones are a married couple from Los Angeles who five weeks ago began a 450 mile march across California as part of a movement to revoke Prop 8.

Their journey ended Friday as they were greeted by gay marriage supporters at the steps of San Francisco City Hall.

"When we have faith and when we have courage, and when we take a hold of a moment in history, when we confront the challenges that face us, amazing things can happen," Paget said.

Paget and Jones' marriage was recognized by the state of California in May.

Their marriage would be invalid under Prop 8.

Sponsors of the measure Friday filed a legal request to nullify marriages of all 18,000 same-sex couples who exchanged vows before voters passed the gay marriage ban.
