I haven't thought enough about how this might feel, and today I am left struggling to find words. I am overjoyed. I am stunned. I am so very proud of my country for finally recognizing my gay and lesbian brothers and sisters in a very profound way. We have finally been granted all of the rights and privileges and the dignity that comes with marriage. Today, the Supreme Courts ruling does not just affect those gay and lesbian couples in committed relationships. It sends a powerful message to all that we are equals and that our love is valid. The fight for marriage equality is not the end goal of LGBTQ equality and we must not forget that! But it is a giant victory to be celebrated. We must continue to fight for equality on all fronts and not leave anyone behind. #lovewins #marriageequality #lgbtq

History made and finally the #SCOTUS rules that gay couples across the nation have the right to marry This is not just marriage its a lot more than that, its about equality, the ability for a spouse to receive all the benefits as any couple would, its about not feeling that your family is less than another due to being a gay couple , this was a battle for over 25 years and those remaining barriers will come tumbling down across the board This will impact business is a positive way allowing for serious talent recruitment as benefits come into play For all those politicians, individuals, supporters that have fought tirelessly for this TAKE A BOW!! Congratulations and now wedding planners will be very busy 😊 BOOM #history #gaymarriage #law #scotusmarriage #humanrights #overdue #marriage #ruling #business #supremecourt #usa #america A photo posted by Louis Velazquez (@louisvelazquez) on

For so long the #LGBT community has worn our sexuality like a scarlet letter, but today we celebrate love and #MarriageEquality with pride and gratitude in our hearts. Thank you to my family and friends for always loving me unconditionally and to #SCOTUS for being on the right side of history. #UnitedWeStand A photo posted by Ronnie FRIEND Kroell (@ronniekroell) on

ALL 50 STATES!!!! 😭 So happy. Times are changing my friends. We have such a long way to go and so much more fighting to do so I hope nobody stops and thinks everything’s ok because it isn’t, BUT it’s days like today, and moments like this that we’ve all gotta have a drink and celebrate how far we have come. I couldn’t be prouder to be gay x love to all x #PRIDE #EQUALITY
