Marriage equality is law across the United States. Sounding off on the issue raised in several consolidated legal cases, The Supreme Court ruled 5-4 today that the 14th Amendment requires a state to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize marriage between same-sex couples married elsewhere. The Court did so on the anniversary of the ruling that dismantled the Defense of Marriage Act, a law restricting federal recognition of same-sex marriage performed by states, as well an earlier ruling that legalized sodomy between consenting adults. As with those rulings, this decision comes just ahead of the biggest Pride weekend of the year, with celebrations in both New York and San Francisco. It's the weekend that we observe the Stonewall Riots, those anti-police-violence protests that many recognize as the catalyst for the mainstream LGBT+ rights movement.
