Marriage Equality

The United States Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges on June 26, 2015. In a 5 to 4 ruling, the Court determined that the Constitution guarantees every American the right to marry the person they love.

Even with this ruling, GLAAD will continue to push for accelerated acceptance of LGBT people, couples, and families across the US. Marriage equality is a benchmark, and not a finish line, and we will continue to tell the stories of everyday LGBT people so that the decisions from the Supreme Court can resonate with the hearts and minds of the public.
