Yesterday was a great day for America, and an even greater day for all members of the #LGBT community. After a long battle, the U.S. Supreme Court Justice Kennedy ruled in favor of marriage equality, affirming that “all Americans are entitled to equal protection of the law” (President Barack Obama). It is now legal, a declared human right, for members of the LGBT community to marry a same sex partner – to marry whomever they fall in love with.
People everywhere are celebrating this substantial moment in history that will forever be celebrated by millions of individuals across the country. This is one of the greatest civil rights victories of our time. Same sex marriage is a nationwide, constitutional right. Regardless of those who don’t support this law, it is important to acknowledge that ” ALL people should be treated equal. Regardless of who they are, or who they love.” Enough of the bullying, the disrespect, the violence, the inequality. Enough is enough; let freedom ring in a rainbow of gay pride.
