Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
Despit previous reports where some country clerks refused to officiate Gay Marriages, the floodgates opened as hundreds of Gays and Lesbians take advantage of California's Marriage laws between same sex couples, some finally see it as California Dreamin.
While Vancouver, British Columbia, once a hotspot for Gays from North America to come to get married see a noticeable downturn in tourism for Gays, Gay weddings are a Gold mine for Vancouver and despite "Big Money Marketing" marketing attempts to lure a growing American market to marry and honeymoon in Vancouver, tourism is down.

SAN FRANCISCO - County clerk offices across California opened for their first full day of same-sex marriages Tuesday, with hundreds of happy gay and lesbian couples ready to take the plunge in what in some cities was a party atmosphere.
A gay men's chorus was singing on the front steps of San Francisco City Hall, brightened up by rainbow flags and supporters handing out cupcakes to happy couples.
