Octogenarian Phyllis Lyon (standing, 2nd L) watches as her partner Del Martin (bottom) signs their gay-marriage certificate
In front of San Francisco county clerk Edwin Lee during the first legal same-sex marriage ceremony at San Francisco City Hall in San Francisco, California.
The first gay couple in recorded history lived in Ancient Egypt in the year 2400 B.C.
Two male royal manicurists named Niamkhkhnum and Khnumhotep were found buried together in a shared room similar to the way married couples were often buried.
Along with that are hieroglyphs combining their names together to say ''joined in death and joined in life''.
Strangely enough, niamkhkhnum did have a wife but in most of the artwork in the tomb she has benn replaced with the mans lover
