DOMA and Prop 8. Rulings: Rockers React on Twitter to Supreme Court’s Same-Sex Marriage Decisions

Win McNamee, Getty Images News

Earlier today, the Supreme Court struck down portions of DOMA, the Defense of Marriage Act, declaring it unconstitutional to deny federal benefits to same-sex couples. The court also dismissed an appeal of California’s Prop. 8, paving the way for gay marriage to resume in that state. Not surprisingly, everyone within arm’s length of a computer has taken to Twitter to share their views on the historic rulings, and rock ‘n’ rollers are no exception. Scroll down to read DOMA- and Prop. 8-related tweets from Tegan and Sara, Carrie Brownstein, Neko Case, Superchunk and some of our other favorite artists.
