The Music World Reacts to Supreme Court’s Ruling to Legalize Same-Sex Marriage
Today (June 26), in a 5-4 ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that state bans on same-sex marriage are unconstitutional, thus recognizing marriage equality across the country. Many – including those in the music world – took to social media to celebrate the historic decision.
Previously, 37 states and the District of Columbia had already legalized same-sex unions, while the remaining 13 states maintained their bans and did not recognize marriages legally performed in other states. With today’s Obergefell v. Hodges decision, those bans will now be overturned and same-sex marriages will be recognized in all 50 states, taking effect almost immediately.
Several musicians have expressed their support for the Supreme Court’s landmark decision today. Read some of their reactions below:
