Love Wins: Supreme Court Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage

Sexual Health

The Supreme Court ruled Friday, June 26, 2015, that the U.S. Constitution recognizes same-sex marriage nationwide in Obergefell v. Hodges, one of the biggest Supreme Court cases in history.

Thirteen states currently have bans on same-sex marriages, but those bans are now unconstitutional, meaning states must begin issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. The ruling is a legal landmark, on par with the 1967 Supreme Court decision that guaranteed interracial couples the right to wed. It symbolizes a period of change in the rights of gays, coming only 11 years after Massachusetts became the first state to allow same-sex marriages.

President Obama took to Twitter to share the news:
