San Francisco teens learn lessons in tolerance and love at festival

SF’s Galileo High School celebrated Valentine’s Day in a style befitting San Francisco as hundreds of students lined up to “marry” their sweethearts regardless of sexual orientation. The marriage was sealed with optional, one-size-fits-all plastic gold bands. The school’s annual “Love Fest” drew hundred of teens in the school’s central courtyard. The event, sponsored by the Gay Straight Alliance and the Wellness Center, promoted acceptance and tolerance and safe decisions in the intimate moments that could happen at that age. A handful of students milled about at the safer sex exhibits, but the biggest draw was the wedding table, where students waited to marry.
