A national flood of emotion over Friday’s Supreme Court ruling to legalize marriage for gay couples turned into a local flood of partiers in Midtown.

By the time politicos and activists wrapped a downtown rally, the gay-ground-zero street corner at 10th and Piedmont Streets was abuzz with cheers, rainbow flags, equality signs and partiers. The event centered at Ten Atlanta and drew throngs of revelers to celebrate well into the night. Even some who got married that day.
