It has been buzzing all around the internet and on news sources all around the world. On Wednesday, June 26th, the U.S. Supreme Court has found the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional and has struck it down. With that, they also have overturned what has be come to known as Prop 8, which as banned same sex couples from getting married in California. This was a historical moment and one that some folks were never sure they were going to see in their life times.

Part of the success is of all of the people who are in favor for equality. Yes, this is a marriage equality issue, but at the root of this all, it is all about equality. Equal rights for all people, no matter their race, color, creed, or sexuality. We are who we are and in the end, we are all entitled to love. Love is love and as we have all seen, love has won!
