Most San Franciscans are aware of the controversy in California regarding the effort to  allow same-sex couples to wed legally. What Bay Area residents may not know is that many gay, lesbian and transgender couples wed in the United States prior to 1950. This exhibit draws attention to anatomically same-sex California couples who married and lived as husband and wife in defiance of legal and social conventions.
