For those within the gay community, today's decision comes just in time. For others, maybe it didn't come soon enough. We wanted to talk about what the court's ruling on DOMA and Prop 8 means to different generations of gay people.

Joining the show are Jack Davis is an 18-year-old out athlete who recently graduated from Palisades Charter High School; Anthony Maldonado, a 48-year-old who, with his partner, raises their 4-year-old son in rural Visalia, California; and 77-year-old Alice Herman, who resides at an LGBT senior home in West Hollywood. She married her partner Sylvia in 2007, but Sylvia passed in 2009.
