New York celebrates SCOTUS ruling at Stonewall
July 01, 2015
On Friday, June 26, supporters in New York City flooded to the historic landmark, Stonewall Inn, to celebrate the enormous ruling that the United States Supreme Court had announced that morning: that denying the freedom to marry to same-sex couples was unconstitutional.
LGBT advocates and marriage leaders joined the crowd of excited supporters, explaining the significance of the day, and thanking the American people for working tirelessly to make this fight possible.
"This win is a result of the work of a movement," Marc Solomon, national campaign director of Freedom to Marry, said as he addressed the cheering crowd at Stonewall that evening. "Let freedom ring, America! When we started at Stonewall Inn, we were a despised minority. Today, we have the freedom to marry in all 50 states."
