The wedding bells are ringing proud and true after this Friday when America finally legalized marriage equality across all 50 states. Before the announcement only 36 states had marriage equality rights but this new law bridges the gap for the remaining 14 states. The announcement came after the Supreme Court voted with the verdict being 5-4. Tons of LGBT members and allies rallied in the streets hugging, kissing and embracing one another for a long time coming.
“Those countless, often anonymous heroes, they deserve our thanks. They should be very proud. America should be very proud” were the words President Barack Obama uttered as he wrapped up his speech giving thanks to the people that endured persistent strife over the matter but never gave up in their efforts.
Tons of media outlets, organizations and businesses showed their support by changing their media icons to rainbow themed banners. Twitter joined in the celebration with the hashtag #LoveWon and posting pictures outside the capitol building of tons of people holding hands, crying, kissing and cheering. Facebook also gave the option to change users profile pictures that included a rainbow filter. Important buildings around the country projected rainbow lights on to the buildings in celebration for this huge victory for the LGBT community.
