Men and women of all cultural origins and orientations flooded the streets in a crowd that numbered in the tens of thousands here in Silicon Valley alone. San Jose Inside asked a number of people what brought them out to the demonstration, what causes they represent and what they hope to accomplish. You can read some of their stories in the photo gallery below.
