The Supreme Court in America has just ruled that same sex marriage is legal in all 50 US States, by a ruling of 5-4. It’s a historic moment for the country, one that campaigners have been waiting for a long time.
This ruling says that the Fourteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution guarantees that gays and lesbians must have the same right to marry as heterosexuals. Justice Anthony Kennedy said, “No union is more profound than marriage for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family".
Pride festival is this weekend – celebrations across the world are going to be off the scale. We'll be partying here too. Listen to our Pride soundtrack to get the celebrations off to a start and congratulations America! Let's hope that this profound change influences every country on the planet.
