A San Francisco gay couple facing a possible deportation may be able to benefit from the Obama administration’s decision to consider same-sex marriage when deciding who should be deported. The San Francisco Chronicle reports:

Bradford Wells, 55, a U.S. citizen, and Anthony John Makk, 48, a citizen of Australia, have resided in the Castro district for much of their 19-year relationship. They were married in Massachusetts seven years ago, but a series of visas Makk had used to remain legally in the United States expires by Aug. 25.

The administration’s new policy, announced Thursday, calls for reviewing on a case-by-case basis each of more than 300,000 pending deportations to determine which cases to pursue and which to ignore on the basis of family relationships, criminal history and other factors.

We’re skipping breakfast this morning and heading to the Street Food Festival hungry. If you’re going, be sure to stop by the Mission Loc@l table and say hi; Andrea and Marta will be there.

Our reporters will also be there covering the event, and we’ll post photos and videos on the website throughout the day. Come visit, and contribute your own photos and videos or tweets about funny/interesting conversations you overhear. Just tweet us at @mlnow and include the hashtag #mlchatter.

Before you go, meet three women who have started their own businesses and will be at the festival today:

  1. Maybe I’m out of the loop, but what exactly is the Street Food Festival you refer to? What’s the point of telling us to show up if you don’t say where and when it’s happening?
