Same Sex Marriage Legalized Nationwide in Historic Decision!
With the weekend closing in and Stonewall Inn getting a landmark status, everyone was ready to go crazy for the end of Pride Week, but the hype bar has been set to the highest of highs. In a landmark 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court has legalized same sex marriage on a national scale! Now people of any sexuality can appreciate the sanctity of a 55 hour marriage! In reality though, same sex couples now have access to rights like hospital visitations, tax benefits, easier adoptions and sponsoring a spouse for citizenship.
Until today only 36 states recognized gay marriage. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who voted in favor of the ruling, stated, “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family.” So wave that rainbow flag high, because this decision has been a long time coming and made possible by the hard work and dedication of advocates everywhere. We’re overwhelmed with joy and ecstatic to win the fight for love. In the words of President Obama, “America should be proud.”
