Celebrities are taking to Twitter to celebrate the U.S. Supreme Court’s 5-4 ruling that it is legal for all Americans to marry. It’s a huge victory for gay rights activists who have battled for decades to have their unions viewed as legal by the government.
The justices found that, under the 14th Amendment, states must issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and recognize same-sex unions that have been legally performed in other states.
Singers John Legend and Miley Cyrus as well as actress Gabrielle Union had these things to say:
Very happy about the SCOTUS rulings this week! Marriage Equality, Fair Housing and Affordable Health Care!
