Photos Of The Nation Celebrating Gay Marriage Finally Being Legal, Because It's About Time America

People celebrate outside the Supreme Court in Washington, DC on June 26, 2015 after its historic decision on gay marriage. The US Supreme Court ruled Friday that gay marriage is a nationwide right, a landmark decision in one of the most keenly awaited announcements in decades and sparking scenes of jubilation. The nation's highest court, in a narrow 5-4 decision, said the US Constitution requires all states to carry out and recognize marriage between people of the same sex.

The Supreme Court has ruled that states can no longer ban same-sex couples from marrying. The historic 5-4 vote by the Supreme Court Justices was announced Friday morning, just in time for a full weekend of Pride celebrations. The ruling means that any couple, in any state, cannot legally be denied the right to marry. The ruling overturns gay marriage bans that exist in 13 states. Check out our nation celebrating that gay marriage is now a Constitutional right, because it's about damn time America.
