This morning's Supreme Court ruling has made history for the LGBT Communities here in America. At the federal level, the American Justice system has recognized for the first time, the rights of gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender couples to receive all the marital benefits, rights and privileges that heterosexual couples enjoy. DOMA (The Defense of Marriage Act) is no more.
Celebrities have spent the morning Tweeting their thoughts on this milestone moment.

It's a supremely wonderful day for equality. Prop 8 is over, and so is DOMA. Congratulations everyone. And I mean everyone.— Ellen DeGeneres (@TheEllenShow) June 26, 2013

Now when people ask "Are you legally married". I don't have to say "Yes, I live in Connecticut". I can say "YES! I LIVE IN AMERICA! #duh".— Michael Buckley (@buckhollywood) June 26, 2013

For gay American citizens, whether they be celebrity or everyday Joes and Janes, this marks a huge turning point in history. The hashtag #LoveIsLove has never been more true. And that's something everyone, star studded or otherwise can get behind.
